Greenwich Maritime Institute invites you to dive into a dark whirlpool of wrongdoing, past and present. Piracy, committed for private gain, is a form of maritime crime often in the headlines, but it is far from the only one. Led by Professor of Maritime Security Chris Bellamy, Dr Cathryn Pearce, author on wrecking and Dr Helen Doe from Exeter University, an authority on smuggling, you will navigate through the depths of mankind's misdeeds on the high seas, rivers and ashore.
The course will explore four main types of sea crime: piracy; wrecking (when ships may be lured ashore and plundered); smuggling; and the wide variety of crimes committed aboard cruise ships, merchant ships and luxury yachts.
The cost is £90 per person and includes course materials, refreshments, lunch and a certificate of attendance.
