INDUSTRY WIDE MENTORING PROGRAM

We see a high performance, innovative and sustainable industry where passion, drive and competency are the factors that determine our future.

LEGASEA Mentorship is the first industry-wide mentoring program for career-focused yachting professionals.

Designed to remove the luck of the draw from career progression and opportunities, members connect with Mentees, Mentors and Peers shoreside and at sea. Utilising a high-impact, intuitive mentoring software, organic connections are cultivated via the comprehensive online platform. Individuals can be both a Mentor and Mentee, creating a circular knowledge economy ensuring every participant gains incredible value while engaging.

​This year, the LEGASEA Mentorship program has been made possible thanks to the support of Quay Crew and Burgess. In addition to co-funding the initiative, each company will be providing scholarship seats to the up and coming talent within their fleet’s and networks.

This is yachting's platform to collectively invest in ourselves, our future and for those that have been mentored in the past to pass it on to the next generation. Successful people like to share what they have learned with others.

 

It’s a human trait to want to leave a LEGASEA.

Yachting's circular knowledge economy

Why Mentorship?

Together we recognise that success leaves clues. Insights, advice and support from those that have already travelled the path we are on are invaluable to those passionate about personal and professional growth. It is also recognised that by connecting with the next generation, experienced professionals gain just as much value from new perspectives, keen curiosity and giving back.

LEGASEA mentoring removes the luck of the draw from opportunity and access for career-focused yachting professionals. It also creates the space for industry leaders to connect with peers, those following in their footsteps, and new idea's. The program is designed to support a robust talent pipeline and ensuring that the experience, skills and insights developed from years at sea and ashore are transferred to all levels and sectors.

 

Whether you're just starting your career, have been in the industry for years or are curious to gain insights into different sectors, this program cultivates a circular knowledge economy. This is the place to grow your knowledge, network and potential.

"Having the opportunity to be mentored by some of the best in this industry has been an amazing experience thus far. I have formed some really great bonds with my mentors who have helped/guided me to land my first position as a deckhand and continue to give me the advice and tools necessary to accelerate my yachting career. My mentors have been extremely encouraging and empowering which has kept me motivated and continues to push me in the right direction. I am extremely grateful for this opportunity and feel very privileged to be a part of the LEGASEA Community!"

MENTORS

Whether from the shore or at sea, all Legasea Mentors are united by the common goal of seeing our industry at its best, and the desire to be part of leaving it better than they found it. 

 

Many of our current Mentors have shared they feel a responsibility to give back to an industry that has given them so much. Many have also shared that they have grown personally and professional themselves from connecting with their Mentees. With the option for all our Mentors to also find a Mentor of their own, many have expanded their personal networks, understanding and expertise along the way.

 

If you:

 

  • Feel a responsibility to invest in the next generation of industry talent

  • Have had a mentor themselves who impacted their career and feel they would now like to pass it on

  • Would like to also find a mentor themselves

  • Would like to connect with peers and expand their knowledge and network with like-minded professionals

Then becoming a Legasea Mentor might just be for you. We are always open to connecting with individuals that feel would like to share their knowledge, and leave as lasting LEGASEA.
