Organizers of a proposed Yacht Captains Association are organizing a captains seminar to be held in the days before the Ft. Lauderdale boat show. The speaker will be Ken Hickling, global manager of Awlgrip and president of the International Superyacht Society, which has spent the past few years writing a code of ethics for the yacht industry. He will speak about ethics and professionalism in yachting.



Hickling will present the ISS perspective on professionalism and ethics and will challenge captains to consider the topic from their perspective and what role they can play in improving industry ethical standards.



The seminar will be held at 6 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 28, at Bistro Mezzaluna and include a presentation and open discussion on the merits of the proposed YCA. Capt. Ian Bone, Capt. Michael Schueler, Capt. Wendy Umla and Capt. Chris Lewis will facilitate the discussion.
