Pondero Candover Valley – Catastrophes: Worse things happen at sea

Accidents do happen, but can we benefit from the knowledge that they bring? Maritime expert Rory Addison will bring his knowledge and humour to explore the fascinating world of lesser known shipping accidents, disasters and pollution incidents, why they happened and what changes came about as a result.

Rory has over 45 years’ experience in the maritime industry including time with the Royal Navy, Merchant Navy, Lecturing, acting as a Maritime Advisor to Government and a Strategic Advisor in marine safety management. He holds a Masters Law degree (Maritime Law) from the University of Southampton and a Maritime Studies degree from University of Wales, whilst also having lectured in maritime law at Southampton Solent University. Rory possesses a thorough knowledge of the shipping industry from general to specialised principles and practices of law, with particular interest including maritime law, law of the sea and commercial law, coupled with extensive knowledge of the maritime commercial and regulatory framework at the national and international level, maritime policy development, major international maritime conventions and the process around their implementation, application and amendment.

Pondero Candover Valley talks are held on Tuesday mornings during term time. A series saver ticket covering all talks in the Spring 2022 series is available here.
