DSUK's first BSL DVD launch onboard Jubilee Sailing Trust's flagship Lord
Nelson at Southampton Boat Show - September 2009
DSUK are holding the launch release in conjunction with Jubilee Sailing Trust of its BSL and subtitles
edition of DVD on seamanship, safety and roping onboard Jubilee Sailing Trust's flagship training tall
ship, Lord Nelson. It was the result of the work of Mike Aston, Mags Aston-Adam, and
Melanie Clark, from DSUK when they were invited by JST to sail with the permanent crew on the Canary
Island in January 2006.
The DVD is being promoted to assist the JST crew with basic BSL signs on essential parts of the ship,
and basic communication with deaf crew onboard Lord Nelson on any trip in the North Europe and in the
Mediterranean. Its launch starts at 2pm on Sunday 13th September, on the ship's first day at the show,
and the public can access to view the launch during their tour.
The DVDs are being on sale on JST merchandise in the Solent Hall throughout the show, and the profit
will be shared between DSUK and JST. Please read the article here.
