Switzerland-based management and brokerage firm Floating Life International held a two-day seminar in early March for yacht captains in Nice to discuss safety, ballast water management, the MLC and the Manila Amendments.
About 30 captains in and out of Floating Life’s fleet attended this third edition of the meeting.
RINA Maritime Office Training Manager Enrico Ursomando explained the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ship’s Ballast Water and Sediments, which goes into effect on Sept. 8.
Other parts of the meeting included a technical discussion of new builds, discussion about MLC and the 2010 Manila Amendments, application of VAT, and a fashion show of Floating Life’s newest line of crew uniforms.
