EXPERIENCED sailor Katie Austen has been appointed as new office administrator at Drew Marine Signal and Safety in Havant.

Katie, 25, has taken part in tall ship races and was just four years old when she owned her first boat, so knows just how important it is for craft to carry marine distress signals.

Katie has also previously worked at the Mary Rose Museum in Portsmouth, has studied art and design and also completed a course in engineering.
