Networking success for yachting community!
Santina Harbour Club, Puerto Portals was the wonderful venue where we hosted the first of our monthly INIPs. These will take place every first working day of the month. From 5-7pm we invite crew and industry professionals to network in a relaxed environment with drinks on the house! On 2nd January and 1st February 2023, Santina Harbour Club will once again welcome us all!
Thursday 1st December 2022 saw about 100 guests enjoyed a wonderful atmosphere, great service and most of all – each other’s company! Many connections were made or re-established between members of the professional yachting community. Among them, a number of yacht crew, CEOs of established businesses, and also many representatives of newer businesses. All guests agreed that this is the type of event they have been waiting for. Being able to meet on a monthly basis deepens the connections that may have already been made, superficially, via social media and annual yachting events.
The new owner of The Islander, Jens Oomes, took the opportunity to give his predecessor, Simon Relph, a warm round of applause. He then continued to thank the guests for showing up with such enthusiasm and reiterated The Islander’s mission to: educate; inform; entertain; and enhance community.
While the network event officially ended at 7pm, Jens grabbed the mic and with the help of guitar virtuoso Bruno Rodrigues, performed some soulful classics.
The Islander’s mission to entertain and enhance community was definitely fulfilled that night!
