Summer is here and so are the holidays. When we think December holidays we think of lounging beside the cool water, swimming and boats. For some, chartering a yatch is just the perfect time to reflect and unwind. To make your yachting experience that much easier, these are the captain’s top tips:
Safety - It’s essential to listen to the safety briefing. It really does save lives. Give your captain and crew your attention at the bringing of your trip.
No ‘Shoe Rule - ’When you board and cross the passerelle or gangway, there will be a basket for your shoes. Reason for this, beautiful teak wood boards are laid and highly polished. Wearing black souled shoes to colour and scuff, any heel will leave indents and shoes generally will bring in dirt, dust, gum and even tar from roads and sidewalks. This is your chance for your pedicures to shine and don’t be afraid to show them off.
Service Staff - If you have boarded an American yatch, then service staff have been trained to interact with clients. European service staff will give you the service you need and require however they will keep invisible and quite.
Planning Ahead - The company you have booked through will provide a chance for you to fill in a preference sheet. This will list your likes and dislikes and what you plan to do while on-board.
