1st YCM Captains’ Club “Superyachts’ Workshop”
25 & 26 October 2017

 

Under the aegis of its Captains Club, and in partnership with the three principal associations, GEPY, Italian Yacht Master and PYA, the Yacht Club de Monaco pursues its role as catalyser and showcase for yachting in the Principality by hosting the first workshop, 25-26 October.

 

Organised with the support of Only Yacht, the one-of-a-kind event is aimed at superyacht captains and is in the form of talks and discussions on topical issues shaping this profession.

Issues that will be raised include what impact does the industry have in the world; what solutions are being deployed to protect the environment; and which labour laws are specific to the luxury yacht sector.

To answer these questions, key industry players represented by the big brokerage, recruitment and charter companies (Fraser, Burgess, Camper & Nicholsons, YPI, Y.CO, etc.) will come together alongside Monegasque Hydrographic Institute authorities and members of the Cluster Yachting Monaco.

 

A preferred home port for superyachts, where many professionals have their headquarters, the Principality of Monaco is a favourite port of call. Through the Yacht Club and Cluster Yachting Monaco actions, the Principality is consolidating its status as the yachting capital.
