Do you have any other pages for around the world? Oh yes, why serve just one destination, when there are yacht crews worldwide, who can benefit from a well functioning crew community? Seeing where Palma Yacht Crew was going, I set up Antibes Yacht Crew, which has about 25k members at the moment. Then followed Italy-, Fort Lauderdale-, St Maarten-, Antigua-, Virgin Islands-, Australia Pacific-, SE Asia-, Dubai- and eventually also Maltaand Barcelona Yacht Crew. On the side, there are a couple of “fun� groups; Yacht Freaks and Yacht Crew Photos. Recently, I started playing around with a few pages, which have various functions; News related articles from all over the net are shared via one easy-to-find-location; Yacht Crew News. Those interested in managing their hard-earned money can find related articles

on Yacht Crew Finance, and recently I also set up a training related page; Yacht Crew Training. Okay, time to take a breath...

Have you seen a change over the last few years in Palma when it comes to yachting? Absolutely! A few years ago there was very little community or easy access to information, once you moved off the docks. That has totally changed with the introduction of the Facebook communities, which brought us all so much closer to each other, whether it would be green crew, captains, crew agents, schools and other industry professionals. Other contributors to this change would be the increased popularity of The Islander magazine and the development of the facilities at STP, which has introduced a much larger number of yachts and crew wintering on the island, making a massive difference.

LOoKiNg FOR a JOb? This year is looking very exciting for the yachting industry! Many new yachts have come into the market, new destinations, and more yachts making the Atlantic crossing again. The crisis looks like it may be definitely over, and with that comes new opportunities for those seeking jobs in the yachting industry and new challenges, for those wanting to get into the market and be at the top of their field and at the forefront of these clients lists.

Make sure you join these groups on Facebook!
