Saga Reveals Godmother for Newest ‘Spirit of Adventure’

The Godmother of Spirit of Adventure is Commodore Inga J. Kennedy CBE QHNS QARNNS.

The former head of the Royal Navy Medical Service is the perfect choice for the role, as we pay a mark of respect to the medical profession, who have worked so hard for the country during the past 16 months.

Commodore Kennedy has led a long and highly distinguished career, combining roles as a Registered Nurse, Midwife, and Lecturer from 1980 to 1998. Having joined the Royal Navy Reserve in 1987, she undertook full-time reserve service between 1998 and 2000 as a senior midwife in the Royal Naval Hospital Gibraltar.

On her role as Godmother, Kennedy says,

“I feel I’m accepting this on behalf of the wider medical community who have worked so tirelessly throughout this pandemic and will continue to do so long after this crisis period fades. Personally, it is also a privilege to follow in the footsteps of Spirit of Discovery’s Godmother, HRH The Duchess of  Cornwall, given her role as Commodore-in-Chief of the Royal Navy Medical Service. I wish Spirit of Adventure, and all who sail on her, the very best voyages.”

The official naming ceremony will take place on 19th July 2021 in Portsmouth.

Spirit of Adventure’s maiden voyage is set for 26th July 2021 calling at Britain’s most famous ports.
