BWA Yachting Renews Pact with International SeaKeepers
BWA Yachting, a provider of marine agency services to superyacht owners and their crews, has renewed its partnership with The International SeaKeepers Society.
The aim of the partnership is to increase participation from yachts in assisting with ocean research, conservation and education. The partnership enters its second year with an emphasis on the DISCOVERY Yachts Program, which utilizes private vessels for marine research, educational outreach, and to deploy oceanographic instruments. The partnership benefits from BWA Yachting’s global network that spans over 370 international ports and marinas through BWA's owned and operated offices in Spain, France, Monaco, Corsica, Italy, Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Turkey, Malta, the Caribbean, Puerto Rico, Florida and New England. One of the key drivers to increase Seakeepers’ success is the accessibility to yachts globally, as demand for vessels continues to rise in multiple regions. As the official Global Yacht Services partner of the International SeaKeepers Society for 2017/2018, BWA Yachting plays a significant role in creating awareness about the DISCOVERY Yachts Program and encouraging participation from vessels.
In addition to their year-round commitment to ocean preservation activities, BWA Yachting's Chief Executive Officer, Stefano Tositti, is the event chair for SeaKeepers’ signature event, SeaKeepers Bermuda 2017 which will be held on Thursday, June 22nd at the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute (BUEI) and Harbourfront Restaurant in Hamilton, Bermuda. The event will honor Wendy Schmidt for her outstanding leadership and support of the environment and ocean conservation. Also recognized during the evening's program will be the SeaKeepers of Bermuda: Philippe Max Rouja, Judy Clee, Chris Flook, and John Paul Skinner as part of the SeaKeepers of the World. This program identifies individuals who demonstrate a commitment to ocean research and conservation in their local communities.
