An experienced Marine Technical Writer, Lyn also has a degree in Technical Communications and is a Fellow of the Institute of Scientific and Technical Communication, plus she has gained certificates in Coastal Maritime Operations (Master Class 5),  RYA Yachtmaster and a long list of other relevant qualifications in Maritime and Aviation operations and management.
