International Yacht Collection (IYC) has announced its First Mate Sponsorship of USSA’s 7th Annual Captains Briefing and Reception, a two-day networking event, 18-19 January 2012, at the Yacht Club Isle de Sol, St. Maarten. The event is of particular interest to IYC as its St. Maarten office supports many of the IYC fleet for charter and sale and is a hub of its Caribbean business.
With two full days of activities, the Captains Briefing will focus on STCW - The Manila Amendments and how the new standards and code will impact the industry; and, a panel will discuss how the MLC will affect the industry.
“International Yacht Collection is pleased to team with and support the efforts of our friends and colleagues at the United States Superyacht Association as a sponsor of the Captains Briefing in St. Maarten. The dialogue developed and fostered by their Captains Briefing series is always beneficial to understanding the pivotal role regulators play in our business” says Bob Saxon, IYC President.
