11 Jun RIMTA and Nicholson Yachts Host First Luxury Yacht Career Day on June 21
Explore a career working on a luxury yacht at the first Luxury Yacht Career Day, held in Newport on June 21 during the Newport Charter Yacht Show. Luxury-yacht crews work in a range of capacities on large vessels that cruise in exotic locales around the world. Participants at Career Day will have an opportunity to tour different types of yachts—including a sailing yacht, catamaran, and power yacht—and meet with crews who work in the capacities of captain, engineer, and chef. Attendees will also learn about land-based careers for the luxury-yacht industry. The event takes place at the Newport Yachting Center (20 Commercial Wharf, Newport, R.I.) from 2-4 pm. Information sessions will be held throughout the event: Sarah Baines of crew-placement agency Ship to Shore will introduce participants to the career opportunities of working on large yachts; boat tours will begin at 2:30; a question-and-answer session will take place at 3:30. This is a free event, but attendees must pre-register here.
