This is Captain Nigel Hope, Director of Training for Trinity House. He’s the one who has kindly commissioned us to make a film about the training scheme he runs, which gives young people (and the not-so young, too) a wide range of opportunities to learn how to be a seafarer. Here, he’s observing the vital survival programme offered, through Chiltern Maritime’s Glyn Barker (next to him) to all who take up the offer to get to sea through Trinity House. Nigel has wide experience both in the Royal and Merchant navies – one of his RN jobs was to look after the amphibious landing element of Operation Telic, the invasion of Iraq in 2003. He’s also one of the ‘Elder Brethren’ of Trinity House. So coping with film-makers like us is just a walk in the park for him!
