Maritime 2023 published

The Maritime Foundation has published Maritime 2023, the latest edition of its annual magazine with a broad range of authoritative articles reflecting the theme “Between global needs and geopolitics”, as well as insights into various aspects of Britain’s maritime history.

Maritime 2023 is a study in perseverance and perspective, with a very large personality and examines how understanding the nature of the challenges ahead is the first step to resolving them, and while there are clear lines of connection between Britain’s past achievements, its present challenges and its future ambitions, several contributions emphasise that many of the old ways are no longer sustainable.

The 64-page magazine also pays tribute to Anthony Harvey who recognised the importance of perseverance and perspective in keeping government aligned with maritime, and was the driving force behind the Maritime Foundation for more than 30 years.

Anthony passed away in October, and such was his commitment to Britain’s maritime heritage and future potential that he led the Foundation team until the end. Read his full obituary here
