Highlighting the “Successful Career” of Julian Joy

Highlighting the “Successful Career” of Julian Joy – an article in the “Our People” section of Professional Skipper March/April 2011
“Majoring in navigation & shipping business management Julian worked on tankers before the introduction of inert gas. His ship was hit by lightening in the Mediterranean Sea – “It was like a big bunsen burner as the gas went out the hollow mast. With the ship on fire, walking the steel decks felt like tissue paper, knowing what was underneath.”
He says it’s interesting that 10 years ago when he first became a lecturer at MNZ Nautical School, the courses he taught were 90% navigation & 10% business. “Now it’s the other way round”
The 1st time Julian went onboard the voyaging waka Te Aurere, was when he was invited to sail for the scattering of David Lewis’s ashes. He is now a director of that operating charity, assisting with that group’s training & safe ship management requirements – a return to the challenge of classical sailing & navigation.
Julian always reminds his students that ” No matter what they learnt at the maritime school, if they get through their career without hitting anything, being hit by anything or sinking, they’ve had a successful career. “That’s the ultimate test”
