PYA OKs Super Crew

ADVERTISEMENT

Super Crew, a training program based in Western Cape, South Africa, has recently become accredited by the Professional Yachting Association.



In operation since October 2011, the training facility specializes in interior crew. It can qualify students for four PYA modules: Interior Introduction, Basic Food Service, Barista and Introduction to Wine and Cocktails.



To give students a taste of the environment they’ll be working in, the program houses students in a guesthouse where students are responsible for maintaining their rooms — for marks — to the same standard as they would guest cabins. They also spend a day onboard a yacht, learning how to clean interior and exterior.



The course “How to be a Super Stew” is taught by a program founder Alison Rese, a former charter yacht captain and chef with 27 years in the industry. Rese also trains crew for two of the larger RYA-accredited schools in the Western Cape.
