MYBA19: Acrew hosts medical, cyber seminars

ADVERTISEMENT

Acrew hosted several events to help crew stay informed and expand their skills at this year’s 31st MYBA Charter Show. Thirty-three crew members from 16 yachts, including yachts Spirit, Calypso, Maltese Falcon, and Garcon, were on hand to learn about handling medical emergencies while on charter with a focus on illness and injury for children and elderly guests.

Sixteen captains, engineers and first officers from 11 yachts sat in on a roundtable discussion about risks and management of onboard cyber connectivity. And another group joined a workshop that covered solar protection and textile architecture.
