  • Repatriation of Personal Possessions

    ​ Repatriation of Personal Possessions To All news 13 April 2021 Last month’s news was that the crew on the 31m M/Y La Dolce Vita had to abandon their burning yacht off the Florida Keys before fire totally gutted it and the yacht sank. Other than the watches on their wrists and the smartphones in their pockets, they may not have managed to take many other of their personal belongings with them when they abandoned the yacht. This was not a unique occasion when yacht crew have been unexpectedly separated from their personal effects in a traumatic manner. A brief online search will reveal a series of other yacht fires and founderings, including some very large yachts. Recently, the 75m S/Y Enigma burned out and sank off Langkawi. The 60m M/Y Yogi sank in heavy weather in the Aegean in February 2012. The Yogi episode was spread over several hours before the crew were lifted off by helicopter, and they reportedly had time to assemble all their belongings to take with them. In other incidents, the speed of abandonment was such that few of the crew members’ personal effects left with their owners. Bicycles, surfboards, parachute packs, and even laptops are unwelcome candidates as survival equipment in a life raft. The above examples illustrate one category of separations between crew and their possessions, namely accidents to vessels. Accidents to individuals, leading to unexpected hospitalization and/or repatriation, are another category. Fatalities, occurring either onboard or during the period of service, are a third category. The Covid-19 crisis has brought to our attention a fourth category of enforced separation of seafarers from their belongings. A combination of quarantine/isolation/lockdown restrictions, plus limited or total unavailability of air travel to particular destinations, has meant that some of our PYA members have been unable to rejoin their yachts after a period of leave and have consequently been paid off. The return of their belongings has not always gone smoothly. The foregoing serves to show that there exists a niche area of crew welfare that is often overlooked and unprepared for until a critical situation arises. Whenever seafarers are separated from their onboard personal possessions for whatever reason, there are specific regulations and protocols to follow. The particular duties and responsibilities of owners/managers and masters, and the rights of the seafarer concerned, will be found in the flag state shipping regulations (for instance the UK Merchant Shipping (Maritime Labour Convention) (Minimum Requirements for Seafarers etc.) Regulations 2014, Part6). In some instances the seafarer’s rights under such regulations may be embodied in, appended to, or referred to in the SEA. With regard to the UK Statutory Instrument referred to above, note the following paragraph: (13) The seafarer or the next of kin, as the case may be, must reimburse the shipowner for the reasonable delivery costs if demanded. A similar clause may be found in the regulations of other flag registries. There is no guidance as to the grounds for reimbursement of such delivery costs. Justifiable grounds could be extreme misconduct on board, leading to instant dismissal and police escort to the airport, or criminal conduct leading to imprisonment under the regime of the port being visited, such as possession of drugs or pornography. No matter who pays for the shipment, a proper accounting of all left-behind possessions is called for in all circumstances. In the event of personal belongings having to be shipped to a former crew member, or their next of kin, the circumstances leading to separation from those belongings, whether fire, foundering, sickness, injury or death are certain to create stress for those involved. The last thing that anybody needs is to compound the stress by controversy over the belongings which have been left behind on board. The best precaution to take in order to avoid a dispute over such possessions is to maintain onboard an electronic register into which each crew member can enter all relevant details regarding their personal belongings. Entries should include a photograph of each item (face and back of the case of expensive watches,) photograph of proof of purchase, make, model, serial number, a brief description, and any other pertinent information (such as provenance). The electronic format allows for easy updates as crew change or they buy themselves new toys, and remote cloud storage safeguards the list in the event of catastrophic annihilation of onboard records. The full list should be password protected, with at least one person ashore, possibly the DPA, having access. With this data always retrievable, appropriate action can be taken in the event of shipment of one person’s belongings, or a post-loss insurance claim by all crew members. If no central registry is kept on board, it would behove each individual crew member to maintain their own personal inventory in a similar remotely stored manner. In all instances, the Master or a delegated officer should verify the existence of all items listed.

  • PYA Issues Over 2,000 Digital Service Record Books (D-SRBs) One Year Since Launch

    ​ PYA Issues Over 2,000 Digital Service Record Books (D-SRBs) One Year Since Launch To All news 1 March 2022 One year ago, we launched our Digital Service Record Book (D-SRB) – the first tool of its kind in our industry – allowing yacht crew to download a digital verified record of their sea service, which they can email directly to the MCA when applying for certification and revalidation. We also reached another important milestone this week, issuing over 2,000 D-SRBs to our members since the launch, proving the success of this pioneering tool.

  • Yachts and small boats to experience extensive delays transiting Panama Canal

    ​ Yachts and small boats to experience extensive delays transiting Panama Canal To All news 11 October 2023 Due to the ongoing drought conditions at the Panama Canal, the local authorities have updated their guidance on restrictions for yachts seeking to transit over the coming months. A shipping advisory has been released warning vessels under 125 feet in length (38.1M) that they will experience significant delays with an extended period of the dry season now forecast to last an additional 2 months in the region. For yachts that are using the Panama Canal Linehandlers, locomotives and Canal transit over 125 feet in length, they can book their transit ahead of time. However, delays are also forecast due to the limited capacity for shipping. As of 1st November, the number of vessels being allowed to transit through the Panama Canal will be reduced to 31 per day (a reduction from 32 currently). Yachts are being encouraged to book their transit as early as possible so that they can avoid extensive delays. The unusual dry season caused by El Niño has been affecting the world’s busiest shipping lane which accounts for 40% of global cargo transit at sea. Opening in 1914, the Panama Canal transformed global shipping routes, reducing the time it took to transport goods from the Pacific to the Atlantic by up to 5 months. Following the expansion of global shipping lanes post WW1 and WW2, today the Panama Canal plays a vital role in the world economy.

  • PYA at the Ocean Race Grand Finale in Genoa, Italy

    ​ PYA at the Ocean Race Grand Finale in Genoa, Italy To All news 10 July 2023 The PYA was invited by the Italian Trade Agency and the city of Genova , through Genova For Yachting , to attend the Ocean Race Grand Finale in Genoa, 10 days ago. The Ocean Race , formerly known as the Whitbread Round the World Race, is an iconic and prestigious sailing event that tests the teams like no other. It is said to be the longest and toughest professional sporting event in the world. Sailors circumnavigate the planet and this year’s edition of the race started from Alicante, Spain on January 15th 2023 and ended in Genoa, Italy on 1 st July 2023. The 11th Hour Racing Team won with 29 points. Congratulations to skipper Charlie Enright and his team for all their hard work and dedication. The program for guests included visiting shipyards such as AMICO , Sangiorgio Marine and Tankoa . It was the perfect occasion to meet captains, crew and companies from all over the world and we had some very meaningful conversations about the yachting industry. Two of the big themes from this year’s event were crew retention and education. With many companies seeking professional crews, there’s a big need for the industry to improve working conditions and the welfare of all crew members. We also discussed current crew issues with Captain Theodoros Antonellos, a member of the Hellenic Yacht Masters Club , which gave us additional insights into the current state of the industry, and we look forward to working more closely together in the near future. We want to say a big thank you to the city of Genova for hosting us at such an incredible event. See some highlights below from our visit to this year’s event.

  • French regulations regarding anchorage and Posidonia – Updated

    ​ French regulations regarding anchorage and Posidonia – Updated To All news 1 April 2021 After two years of discussions, the main orders prohibiting mooring in the French protected areas of the Mediterranean have been published. This means that yachts will have to anchor further from the shore and beaches. The three main yachting associations: PYA, ECPY and GEPY met recently with the services of the Maritime Prefecture, to discuss the new regulation and its implementation. The maritime authorities The maritime authorities recognise, the positive economic impact of the yachting industry on the Mediterranean coasts, as well as the efforts of yachting professionals to protect the environment.The three associations raised concerns regarding the complexity of the new rules and the need to implement clear information campaigns about the implementation of the rules (up-to-date charts, etc.). Key facts The maritime authorities will encourage the creation of organized buoy fields and moorings, with public as well as private funding. These facilities will be under the responsibility of land-based authorities and local communities. In case of adverse weather, the authorities have confirmed that safety and security will take precedence. Vessels that may take shelter in forbidden zones (Posidonia meadows) may be required to provide justification for their decision. The maritime authorities are attempting to speed up the update of the new charts published by SHOM. It is also understood that messages regarding the anchoring rules will be broadcasted through CROSSMED, both in French and in English. It is understood that the restricted areas will also be displayed on the Donia application. There are areas such as the beach of Pampelonne in Saint Tropez/Ramatuelle where the regulations are not yet clarified. The authorities have indicated that, in future regulation, they will adopt a limitation of mooring time to 72 hours. This will not apply to yachts in routine operation, with crew on board, but rather to vessels left without supervision and presenting a risk of stranding. To enable this management of mooring times, the Maritime Prefecture has agreed to establish a list of yachts (24-45m) benefiting from an implicit renewal every 72 hours, for the whole season. Unlike the Spanish or Italian authorities, France elected to sanction the position of the vessel itself. This can lead to serious consequences as the maritime infraction can amount to 150,000€, whereas the environmental infraction is "only" a hundred euros. In addition, several of the means to be used to establish potential offences, such as human observation from aircrafts, boats or land-based platforms can lead to arbitrary decisions. PYA, ECPY and GEPY will continue to work closely with the maritime authorities (Préfecture maritime de Méditerranée), to propose a joint Préfecture maritime / Yachting professionals observatory to monitor incidents during the season.
