Where’s my crew at? (31 August 2023)

Yachting is proud of its maritime and navy heritage, so why isn’t there a similar approach when it comes to quality recruitment?
As a relative newcomer to the industry, it seems obvious to me that there needs to be a greater push to recruit and train young people from low-income backgrounds. It’s no secret that there is a lack of quality crew available for the fleet, and you’d have to have been living under a rock to not have heard about the low retention and mental health rates of crew.

With more boats than ever on the water and the new build boom rolling on, why aren’t there more initiatives aimed at diversifying the pool of talent?
