Sailing with a World Class Leadership Team

Leading Questions is one of my regular reads and yesterday Ed Brenegar wrote a great post Sailing with a World Class Leadership Team in which he profiles his friend Peter Grimm, a superyact crew chief.

Perseus

Perseus, the superyacht mentioned in the article and pictured above was built by Perini Navi, the same yard that built the Maltese Falcon which I posted about yesterday.

These are very impressive vessels; however, over the past decade the superyacht industry has grown so rapidly that there is a looming crisis in finding qualified crew to man them. (Read about it here.) One of Sea-Fever’s objectives in creating and delivering youth sail training programs like the ones chronicled in this blog (here, here, here, and elsewhere) is to introduce young people to maritime careers. Of course, our number one objective is to give these young people life changing experiences that teach valuable lessons about respect, teamwork, leadership and so much more. In the long run, the benefits of these programs can be far reaching. The superyacht owners and operators should take more notice of them because the future of their vessels could depend on it.
