OPINIONS, FACTS, STORIES AND WHAT’S NEW IN THE FASCINATING WORLD OF YACHTING


DOUBLE DENIM Yes it’s back and it’s YACHTIE TYPES Seasick Nanny


“Oh fab look the owner’s bringing their nanny to


look after their unruly kids! No more scrubbing crayon crap off the white sofas,” said the Chief Stew…. Until the poor nanny who’s never been on a kayak let alone a superyacht turns a whiter shade of pale 30 seconds off the dock and is completely immobile for the whole charter. And it’s like having an extra, bed ridden guest to wait on. Oh well, at least the combination of scotchguard and vomit stopped the crayon sticking to the sofa hey.

MYTHICAL MONSTER


Lernaean Hydra - More often known simply as the Hydra, was a serpentine water monster in Greek and Roman mythology. The Hydra was the offspring of Typhon and Echidna. It possessed many heads, the exact number of which varies according to the source. Later versions of the Hydra story add a regeneration feature to the monster: for every head chopped off, the Hydra would regrow a couple of heads. The Hydra had poisonous breath and blood so virulent that even its scent was deadly.


fresh! Previously frowned upon as resembling Justin Timberlake and Britney in the 90s, double denim was a total faux pas. No more! Now you are very on trend if you’re teaming head to toe denim. Rock-on Status Quo.


CLEANING UP THE OCEANS World Oceans Day was celebrated in style back in June. There’s an amazing amount of communities and foundations getting behind these initiatives, and rightly so. Remember guys, the oceans provide us all with a decent living.


EASTERN MED Charters are heading East this summer. The rising stars are Croatia and the Dalmatian Coast, Montenegro and the Aegean islands. This area has an enormous amount to offer the cultural buffs and for natural unspoilt beauty, it’s hard to beat.


BLACK ICE CREAM Launched by Jude’s Ice Cream in the UK, it’s made with exotic sounding coconut ash and has an intense rich coconutty flavour. This is the edgiest summer treat this season. So, black is the new vanilla.


A ship is always referred to as ‘she’ because it


costs so much to keep one in paint and powder

ROGUE CREW AGENTS With social media sites making it easier for unregulated crew agents to operate, one prominent crew agent has suspended operation in protest. Crew need to be aware of the ramifications of using an unregulated agent too.


CONTRACTS People are still joining yachts without contracts in place. This never ends well. Yachting is a professional industry and if a captain won’t give you a contract, walk away. You are not protected and they don’t even have to pay you.


DRUGS & ALCOHOL A sad trend this one… reports of drug use and alcohol abuse in the industry are on the increase. If you feel you’re developing a problem find local support. Don’t be alone.


VINEGAR On all our yachtie FB groups if any one asks how to remove a stain from ANY surface, why do people say vinegar? Great for your chips but not for these delicate interior surfaces. Do the right thing and get some professional advice.
