ISS announces a complete day of crew & industry educational forums


The International Superyacht Society (ISS) announces that Dockwise Yacht Transport and Sony Electronics have joined its growing list of existing Bronze Sponsors: Interlux, Lewis Marine, Royal Huisman and Show Management. With its multi-purpose approach to supporting the large yacht industry—through membership initiatives and networking; achievement and leadership recognition programs; and its educational focus on recruiting entry level personnel to the industry and providing general yacht industry training—an ISS Bronze Sponsorship is dedicated specifically to ISS’s instructive programs

Each year ISS is able to present the large yacht industry with a full day of seminars and networking that captivates yachting enthusiasts and inspires the interest of the industry’s leadership. This year, ISS is featuring an extraordinary headline speaker, Jimmy Cornell, for its annual Yacht Industry and Crew Training Seminars. Mr. Cornell captures every audience he speaks to with his tales of sails—including circumnavigating the globe three times—and is the author of 14 books on the subject. His presentation “World Cruising” will capture the essence of his most famous (and oft reprinted) reference book.

With two morning and afternoon seminars that run concurrently from 10:00 A.M.-12:00 P.M. and 1:00 – 3:00 P.M., Mr. Cornell will present his material in both sessions while “Introduction to Yachting & the Marine Industry,” presented by Kristen Cavallini-Soothill of American Yacht Institute, will take place in the morning and “Business Etiquette & Presenting Yourself for Interview,” presented by Martha Galvez, a certified trainer from the Protocol School of Washington, will run in the afternoon.

For participants who pre-register, a complimentary luncheon will be served. Over the years, a lot of great networking has taken place over lunch!

ISS continues to enjoy the unwavering multiple-year-support of the following companies: American Yacht Institute, Crew Network, Interlux, Lewis Marine Supply, Inc., Maritime Professional Training, MIASF, Royal Huisman, Show Management, The Crew Report, and Westrec Marinas.
