Seawork is pleased to announce that Shelley Jory, one of the UK’s leading powerboat racers and co-host of BBC Radio Solent’s H2O Show will be the compere for the evening at the Seawork Innovations Awards on Tuesday 16 June 2015.

She is an articulate and motivational speaker, extremely passionate about her sport. With her winning personality, Shelley will bring experience, humour and an in-depth knowledge of the powerboat racing world to the evening.
The Seawork Innovations Awards Evening is always popular and a fabulous opportunity for companies to be recognised by their peers, for their achievements within the commercial marine industry.
The Spirit of Innovation Award is a hotly contested trophy for Seawork exhibitors who, in the past 12 months, have introduced and promoted products, vessels, services or projects to their key commercial audience. There will be various category winners and this prestigious award is given to the overall winner.
