Bumper turnout for our pre-season free talks for new crew in Antibes
More than 250 hopeful new crew attended our free talk series in Antibes this spring, a record turnout for our Crew Division in association with our Crew Coach.
Arming them with a wealth of information about yachting, what’s really expected of them by owners, guests and senior crew and busting many of the myths they may have heard along the way, these talks have been a great success in sending prospective new crew into the industry with a much better understanding of their role and how they contribute to the yachting industry as a whole.
In addition to our Crew Division representatives being there to answer questions and meet crew after the talk, every week one lucky participant went home with a free ‘Ultimate Yachting CV Toolkit’ courtesy of our Crew Coach; an online package filled with information about how to layout a perfect CV for yachting including a pre-formatted Word template and ‘how to’ videos with step-by-step instructions on what information to include where, and why.
One winner wrote in to say: “After amending my CV with the toolkit that I won at the Free Talk, I got an amazing position as lead steward on a very big motor yacht. Thanks for all your help and advice.”
Other attendees were also sent our Crew Coach’s helpful PDF, “The 10 biggest myths about yachting that will stop you getting hired” and benefited from discounts and special offers made by our three talk sponsors - The Crew Academy, Deckers Uniforms and Zephyr Yachting - who were all there each week to answer questions.
