Write to be heard: Boardings take all shapes

ADVERTISEMENT

In reference to your recent captains lunch conversation about boardings [From the Bridge: “Boardings range from normal to nerve-racking,” page A1, January issue], if I may, I’d like to be of help to other skippers in the Med regarding boardings, but not by “officials”.

If at anchor in St. Tropez, for example, if you leave the yacht to go ashore with the owner or guests, make sure all doors and hatches are closed and locked. I was “boarded” twice off Club 55. Thanks to the navette driver who called me on the portable, the person left.

Here’s another tip: Make sure the navette drivers are given a good tip, as they only work in season and get to know the yachts and skippers who are good, which are bad.
