ISS to launch new program at Fort Lauderdale show

The International Superyacht Society teamed up with the Marine Industries Association of South Florida and the United States Superyacht Association to create YachtInfo, an alliance dedicated to the industry's professional development.

YachtInfo, making its debut Oct. 30 at the 50th annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, offers curriculum for entry level crew through seasoned professionals. The program builds upon the ISS's crew training seminar program that has occurred for the last 14 years.

Capping the YachtInfo day-long educational series, a captains briefing and cocktail party will follow. The captains briefing will be the second in as many years at the Fort Lauderdale show and one more in a series of similar events held previously in St. Marten and Newport, R.I.

Tickets for the Fort Lauderdale YachtInfo seminars are $25; complete tickets - which include the seminars, captains briefing and cocktail party - are $35.

In related news, ISS announced other activities taking place during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. These include:

* Board of directors meeting from 3-6 p.m., Oct. 27 at Ardell, 1550 S.E. 17th St.

* Membership meeting and breakfast, from 8-10 a.m., Oct. 28 at Bahia Mar Beach Resort & Yachting Center, Harbour Lights
