"Commitment to Training, Commitment to Crew"

Captain John Percival was an ambassador for on-board training and encouraging investment in a yacht's crew.

JPMA, the yacht training centre he founded, aims to promote high standards in all levels of crew, in all departments, inspiring students to return to their vessel emboldened and ready to nurture junior crew. 

In his memory, the John Percival Leadership Award was created, to reward crew members, at all levels, who personify that ideal. The award is now in its fourth year.


Calling all crew - do you have a true leader on board?


Does your Bosun guide you in your career decisions, sharing knowledge and recommending courses?




 Does your Engineer explain what goes on within the engine room, letting you shadow engine room checks?



Does your Chef share tips and techniques, encouraging crew to expand their culinary knowledge and abilities?




If so - tell us!
