Bluewater announces new measures for its recruitment and training services

John Wyborn, director of training at Bluewater, has announced new measures put in place for all its recruitment and training services to put at ease all those who have bookings with the company. Having recruited and trained crew since 1991, Wyborn expressed that Bluewater is prepared for the challenges ahead brought by the coronavirus pandemic. The announcement comes after President Macron declared new restrictions in France.

The training school in Biot will remain open and will continue to teach. Courses are still available to book online or by contacting the team.

“We are continuing to adhere to social distancing and masks are obligatory for all instructors and crew, but no courses are being cancelled. The training schools in Palma and Fort Lauderdale are running as normal,” Wyborn said.

Due to the new restrictions, Bluewater is unfortunately not able to welcome crew or clients in to its Antibes offices, but the team are monitoring all calls and emails.

Palma and Fort Lauderdale are continuing as normal and look forward to welcoming trainees to their offices. Wyborn encourages people to visit the team at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show this week.
