April was a very busy month in the Viking Crew Events calendar for 2022!
After two years, we were very happy to be back on the road and attending the many fantastic industry events that keep us connected with our clients and crew members.
South of France Interview Days 7th – 8th April
Rebecca and Lien from our Yacht Crew placement team held an interview day in Monaco on the 7th April and one in Antibes on the 8th April. It was fantastic to get out and meet with crew for face-to-face interviews once again. Thanks to all that attended, some travelling quite the distance!
Yacht Needs Crew Party – 8th April
On Friday the 8th of April, the annual Yachtneeds crew party took place at Port Vauban in Antibes, France. Hundreds of yacht crew gathered together for a very successful event, to enjoy a night of fun, with bbq/drinks, DJs/Saxophonist, Magicians, and more.
