A love of mathematics and an enduring interest in yachts and small craft design was the formula that prompted Maggie-Rose Gilligan to study at the Australian Maritime College. Maggie-Rose chose to study a Bachelor of Engineering (Naval Architecture) and recently travelled to Saint Tropez in France to compete against thirteen other counties in a HYDROcontest.
“This was a once in a lifetime opportunity and I learnt so much from the competition and the experience as a whole,” she said.
