Porto Montenegro developed an online platform for its marina staff and yacht crews to boost morale during the pandemic. It includes fitness classes, virtual sailing lessons and quiz nights.

“As a world-leading marina and nautical tourism destination, Porto Montenegro is doing what it can in order to help our resident marina guests make the best of the current situation we all find ourselves in,” marina director Tony Browne said in a statement.

“Challenging times call for innovative thinking, which is why we have come up with some interesting solutions for our renowned Crew Club Calendar,” he added. “This includes captains cocktail hour, pub quizzes, sailing regattas and wellness sessions — all hosted online. We like to think of it as essential physical distancing whilst remaining social.”

Though the marina remains closed to the public, in line with government regulations, service remains operational via the virtual platform, “where face-to-face video calls are swiftly becoming the new norm — at least for now,” Browne said.
