The International Superyacht Society (ISS) has announced that Wright Maritime Group (WMG) has agreed to provide yacht crew with STCW BST training a one-year free membership in ISS when crew sign up before the end of 2016.

Commenting on the announcement ISS president Derik Wagner says: “WMG’s innovative approach to providing yacht crew with an entrance into this global organisation builds ISS’s important relationships with them and gives one of the industry’s most important groups, crew, a significant voice with top industry influencers.”

To enroll, STCW BST crew are asked to provide minimum information.

  • Name
  • Country of Residency
  • Email address
  • Years in yachting
  • A copy of STCW BST certification

“There are compelling reasons for crew to become involved in the International Superyacht Society and for ISS to support crew. WMG feels strongly enough to underwrite this mutually beneficial relationship by sponsoring the initiative,” says AJ Anderson, WMG managing director/CEO and ISS director and chairman of the policy and technical committee.
