from Ship to Shore and a Whole Lot More

Former First Mate Michelle Clarke is now telling her story as the highest-ranking seafarer to transition, male to female. Her account will help change the future of maritime historiography. The story of the maritime past will become more diverse and inclusive because of her open-ness.
Dr. Jo Stanley’s article about her is out in Nautilus International’s Telegraph, 21 March 2021. The article is a prelude to her autobiography, due out in April.
So I hope you will help this story reach many people by:
