MM&P LICENSED DECK OFFICER IN ABC VIDEO ON WOMEN IN MARITIME

August 1st 2019

In a short film that aired on ABC on July 9, MM&P member Dana Ryan, who is currently sailing as chief mate aboard the ST. LOUIS EXPRESS, talks about how a childhood affinity for boating led to her career as a professional mariner.

“I grew up boating with my dad,” Ryan says.

“I loved being on the water and took the helm at a very young age… I would just stare out at the ocean and think ‘I need to be out there.’”

“The sky’s the limit,” she says. “Or maybe the ocean’s the limit.”

The film, “A Sisterhood of Sailors,” centers on Women Offshore, an organization founded by mariner Ally Cedeno to provide professional support to the growing number of women entering the maritime industry.

Cedeno describes Women Offshore as “an online community focused on connecting and supporting women who work on oil rigs, platforms and ships around the world.”
