About 60 owners and future owners gathered in La Grande-Motte from May 19th to 23rd, 2021, in a very friendly atmosphere, for the highly anticipated Outremer Week Spring 2021: an intense week of training.
Despite these uncertain and sometimes trying times, each and everyone was able to follow their own personalized training course, in small groups on land and at sea and offered in English or French. Some of the most popular topics covered were: Medical procedures onboard (with practical exercises on pig’s feet!), Port maneuvers and Safety at sea (for those who were not afraid of getting wet) and the famous Ladies Only, with a 100% female crew as its name suggests, led by our kind and experienced skipper Nikki Henderson.
All this in compliance with a health protocol which allowed for a smooth week (Thanks to Dr. Von Bilderling, owner of an Outremer 55, who was able to source a batch of auto-tests)
In total, over 10 nationalities from 3 different continents (including Australia!) gathered for the occasion. Beyond practical knowledge, participants shared precious moments, exchanging on their experiences and expectations (especially during aperitif on the rooftop!)
A big thank you to all of you for your enthusiasm and to all those, staff and instructors, who contributed to the success of this new edition of Outremer Week.
