About Cathy Shelbourne

My maritime heroes, ships and pirates are my passion! As I travel the world giving talks on cruise ships, I research the ports and places we visit for more information on, and photos relating to, the naval heroes, explorers, circumnavigators, pirates and privateers sailing the world up to five centuries ago.

I'm an experienced speaker, member of Toastmasters International, and frequent finalist in speech contests. I also belong to the Society for Nautical Research, and the Yachting Journalists' Association.
