The Even Keel Project

Sailing is one of very few sports in which having a physical disability does not have to be a disadvantage. Through its adaptive sailing programme, The Even Keel Project is providing able bodied and disabled enthusiasts with the opportunity to participate together in a sailing activity that would otherwise be normally outside their reach using the brilliantly designed Artemis 20 keelboat.

Royal Southern Yacht Club

In the run up to arguably the two most important years in the Club's history and as it further develops its strategic marketing policy, the Royal Southern, whose Admiral is HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, appointed Peta Stuart-Hunt as its Press Officer to exclusively co-ordinate all of its future media output.

PR Works assists the Club's marketing team in shaping and directing its media and communications, covering the varied and lively programme of news and events. In confirming the appointment, Royal Southern Commodore, Mark Inkster, said: "The Club was on the verge of the two biggest and most important years in its distinguished history with an ambitious and exciting programme of events that was already well advanced in its planning."

"Peta brings an added dimension to our team, and she offers us not only her immense experience in the leisure marine industry but one of the best track records for getting quality results with creative flair and sense of humour. It's a perfect fit for what we are looking to achieve here."
