BYM Editor Cathy McLean short listed for 2 British Maritime Foundation Awards.
Monday, 09 November 2015
Cathy was a founder of BoatsYachtsMarinas in November 2000. In 2004 the name was changed to the shorter BYM News. In the same year BYM format changed to five dedicated news services. These remain today.
Later French, German, Italian and Spanish Language services were added.
During those fifteen years under Cathy McLeans stewardship BYM news has brought awareness of marine issues to all corners of the globe.
So perhaps the best testimony to Cahy McLeans work is the way it has been appreciated with 33, 899,041 page views since records were kept in August 2012.
Win or lose Cathy we at BYM are proud of your achievement.
