This article reports that Great Britain deputy prime minister John Prescott has launched a new Web site designed to attract the next generation of British sailors. The site asks schoolchildren to consider a career at sea. It gives young people the chance to gain good qualifications, solid experience and the variety of working on cross-channel ferries, giant supertankers, container ships or even cruise liners. The Web site contains key links to maritime sites, giving young children the opportunity to find out more about a job in the Merchant Navy. It also features a rundown of events in September 2000 aimed at promoting the industry.
