- We need more female sailors
Sailor Signi Maersk Svendsen has a clear message to her fellow sisters. - I enjoy very much working at sea. It's a good profession and a nice place to be.
Of the 72 cadets from the Naval Academy who are on board the Statsraad Lehmkuhl, only 17 are girls. There is also a predominance of men among the crew.
- As one of the women here, I think it's cool that I can show that this is a job we are as capable of doing as the men, says cadet Ingrid Emilie Rokstad.
She comes from a family of sailors, and wants to maintain the tradition.
- The fact that I can continue that tradition as a woman at sea is something I am very proud of.
