MYBA19: Acrew hosts medical, cyber seminarsMay 7, 2019 by Triton Staff
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.
