The Triton


Mentor program in the works

Posted on by in

In other PYA news, the group is asking captains to take a survey about student work placements onboard.

“It is the intention of MYBA, GEPY, ItalianYachtMasters, Yacht Captains Association and the PYA to encourage young people to enter the yachting sector,” the YCA said in a statement. “We are in a position to encourage local colleges and schools throughout France and Italy to send students on work placements onboard yachts for all departments; and if this survey is positive we intend to explore other regions and countries to be included in this incentive. It is our intention to make yachting careers and the yachting sector more accessible to young people, and offer a better structure and guidance for the options available.”

The yacht does not have to be based in France or Italy to participate, and program would focus students in the winter months as the placements would range from one to six weeks.
