"Now that the organization has gained momentum in South Florida, we look forward to the addition of Monaco and London chapters of Young Professionals in Yachting. We now aim to sustain our South Florida chapter, successfully grow our European counterparts, and to eventually provide a platform for all worldwide members to connect as well. The organization will make small differences to adapt to European culture, but its mission and operation will emphasize the same principles.Former YPY President, John Jarvie
