We are thrilled to announce our first winner of the EDGEucation Scholarship, for a Helm Management course, which was drawn on 27 April in Barcelona during the MYBA Yacht Charter Show.
Tyrone Sharp is a first officer currently preparing for a busy summer season in the Med. He is looking to take his prize course this coming Autumn.
There are still three chances to win a deck officer’s course so don’t delay in entering! If you don’t win for a prize draw, you will be automatically entered into the next course, so the sooner you enter, the more chance you have of winning!
Full information on the EDGEucation Scholarship can be found here.
The recent spate of fires on yachts is a harsh reminder about the importance of safety on board every single yacht. No matter what a yacht’s size, whether it’s considered as private or commercial, the most important priority should be – and thankfully usually is – the safety of those on board, followed by the safety of the yacht itself and the safety of the marine environment.
It’s the time of year when a lot of aspiring superyacht crew are making their way to yachting hubs in the Mediterranean to find that elusive first job. In order to be allowed to work on a chartering or commercial superyacht, for safety reasons, all crewmembers are required to have certain basic qualifications or certificates, including the STCW Basic Safety Training and the ENG1 medical certificate.
