This Maritime Experience Day was organized by
the Caribbean Sail Training Association
( we normally work mainly with the sail training
vessels and tall ships ) and in cooperation with the
St.Maarten-St.Martin Classic Yacht Club and the
Maritime School of the West Indies because we
wanted to give the St.Maarten youth a taste of
the mega yacht industry.
We arranged that they could go out on the motor
yacht Berzinc.
The trip was partially sponsored by the Maritime
School of the West Indies which is a world
renowned school for professional yachting courses
here on the Island.
We are very happy also that Alberic Ellis and his
staff from the Port de Galisbay again cooperated
fully with facilitating this trip ( clearance, docking
etc. ) and we thank of course the Belgian
management company Exmar, the owner and
Captain Bernard Vivegnis and crew for all their
The company Yacht Assistance provided free
ship agent services before, during and after
the Maritime Experience Day trip.
