The First International Crew Awards was successfully held at Le Palace, Nice on October 13th, 2018 to a packed audience comprising of more than 300 guests. It was a marvelous celebration of the captains and crew that make the yachting industry such a dynamic and passionate space!
Envisioned and pioneered by ACREW, the spectacular evening was themed around the Great Gatsby with live performance and curated entertainment. Over 170 Crew from 80 yachts were nominated in the 17 Categories including every department on board, best charter and private yacht, as well as the rewarding crew who excelled as leaders, team players, courage or work in sustainability.
We’re still reeling from the infectious energy from last weekend. Every captain and crew turned up at Le Palace with gusto. The final nominees were interviewed on Monjin, by judges sitting in different parts of the world. One of the many ways Monjin’s platform is put to work! pic.twitter.com/Hyic59kRRV

The crew members were enabled by the Monjin platform to both nominate and vote for their teammates. This was further refined to a shortlist of 3 Finalists per category and the winners were presented their awards amongst great camaraderie at the event.
During the nomination phase, we saw close to 200 entries, presenting some fantastic candidates. The voting process followed throughout August and over 10,000 votes were cast. Partnered and supported by Monjin as a Gold sponsor, this was a first of many and a memorable experience for all!
