WE ALL TAKE IT AS READ, THAT WHAT GOES ON ‘ONBOARD’ STAYS ‘ONBOARD’. FOR SOME YACHTS, THE NDA AGREEMENTS PUT IN PLACE COME IN VERY HANDY. BUT IT WAS NOT JUST THE BEDROOM ACTIVITIES THAT MADE OUR STEWS BLUSH, SOME OF THE GUESTS’ REQUESTS WERE ABSOLUTE CLASSICS THIS YEAR
This summer season in the Med has been full of ups and downs, and ins and outs… job availability has been a little different from the usual crazy March to May rush too for various reasons. It definitely seems more of the usual Med boats have stayed over the other side of the pond for the summer, choosing instead to cruise up to Newport, or even further to Canadian waters.
An increase in the number of yachts heading to the Baltic has also been reported, which has left a few empty berths over summer in the Med this year which is, frankly, unheard of. Perhaps owners are getting a bit fed up with the super high mooring costs? Or maybe they just fancied a change of scenery.
One thing, however, that has not changed, is the amount of jaw droppingly funny and/ or shocking stories that emerge on a day to day basis, in our lives tending to the super rich. As the Med season draws to a close, everyone’s flat out exhausted, I find it’s always good to have an ‘End of Season De-Brief’ whereby we hear about some of the spectacular incidents that have been occurring (don’t worry, no names – we protect the innocent… and the not so innocent) across the industry, in order to reassure ourselves that someone had it worse than you did.
