ACREW to Host Crew Development Workshop in Antibes


With over 5,000 Members, including more than a 1,500 Captains, ACREW is a member led organiser of events introducing crew to professional development opportunities.

Superyacht crew are invited to attend free workshops, discussion groups, networking and social activities at our events in yachts shows, shipyards and marinas.

The next such event will take place in Antibes on 27th February

This one day crew professional development pop-up event offers free workshops specifically for Captains, Interior and Deck Crew. These sessions, held in a marquee on the IYCA dock, are designed to help crew gain useful skills and information to help in their daily work in their professional role.

The workshops will include a workshop on Hiring with X-Ray Vision for Captains provided by Alison Rentoul – The Crew Coach. Crew learn how to take all the risk out of hiring with innovative profile testing to help you see through to the real person underneath.

Peter Vogel from IYS will also be attending the event to provide a workshop for Interior Crew on the topic of Creating High Performing Interior Teams. This workshop aims to make life on board easier by offering awareness of the individual development stages of your fellow peers and the matching leadership styles. The end result is that managers and crew start speaking a common language.

Deck Crew will be offered a hands-on Ropes & Rigging workshop by Gremco. This workshop will provide an overview of different types of lines & rope and when to use them: practical demonstrations exploring the dark art of splicing and an opportunity to solve your problems and issues in a Q&A session.

As part of ACREW’s initiative to provide personal development opportunities to crew, ACREW have also invited leading financial planning and recruitment specialists to attend. Oliver Maher from United Advisers Marine & Tim Reedman from St James’s Place will be available throughout the day for private One2One appointments. Our catering partners NEKO will be serving delicious snacks and lunch for all workshop attendees and crew visiting to speak with our onsite personal development specialists.

ACREW are also hosting a crew happy hour including free drinks & live music featuring Al Roberts from the Blah Blah’s from 17.00 – 19.00.
