Ayca Seminar 2017 - a success!

Newport Shipyard

Dear Members, Attendees and Sponsors,

Thank you to all who attended and supported this year's Newport Yacht Charter Show and Seminar (held on Thursday, June 22, 2017). Brokers all the way from France to San Diego enjoyed yacht-hopping on quality New England sail and motor yachts this year.

The topics were varied and we do hope everyone took away valuable information for their business and to share with colleagues and staff.

We feel it is important to be informed and knowledgeable in all aspects of our businesses.

To that end, I have included the brochure that outlines our June 22nd Breakfast with many thanks to our generous and repeat sponsors. This was the first year we offered a Health News component. We did get some local PR thanks to this (which is always a plus), but most importantly it was a timely topic on preventing melanoma in our "sunny vacation" destinations and every day. Here is a link to the article for your interest: SUN PROTECTION ON DECK
