The Maritime Labour Convention of 2006, held by the International Labour Organisation, established seafarers’ rights as they exist today, in addition to setting universal labour conditions for the maritime industry.

Is positivity enough to break into yachting?


 Q: Abi, 21:

“I recently met someone who told me that it wasn’t worth going to Antibes to find work—he said he went last year and spent all his money looking for a job that never came. He told me the whole experience was depressing and he wished someone had warned him how tough it was. I’ve already booked my flight so I’m going anyway and I’m still excited, but I want to know how much of this is true. What are my chances of success? I want to be prepared. Do you think he just had a bad experience? Maybe he was just being negative – I am a really positive person so maybe I will be OK?”
