Captains group to focus on career, business development

ADVERTISEMENT

The captains proposing the formation of a Yacht Captains Association believe that career and business development opportunities can best be facilitated by an organization that exists for the benefit of yacht captains and that is governed by yacht captains.



The proposed YCA will thus have a key focus on providing yacht captains opportunities for career development and business start-up and incubation initiatives.



We understand that most captains’ careers have the potential to stall and even derail following the inevitable decision to resume an onshore life. Unquestionably, the decision to relinquish command is one of the most difficult decisions that a captain will have to make.



At some stage of a yacht captain’s life, the call comes generally from family members to spend more time at home, stay ashore and “get a normal job”. And all know this day will come, but with human nature being what it is, procrastination occurs and the decision is shelved.



However, the time will come, and when it does, this transition can put significant pressure on individuals and their families.



We think that a captains organization can and should help individuals and their families adjust to these changing career circumstances and we also believe that we can best establish links, facilitate powerful relationships and work in close cooperation with individual captains to assist them transition their careers.

As an organization that has its members’ interests first and foremost, a Yacht Captains Association can work with education providers to establish partnerships, create relationships with business leaders and members of the corporate world to implement a range of services to help captains manage their career transition.



We believe that ultimately we can implement these strategies across the globe in whatever location we have clusters of yacht captains living.
