Thank you note to Carol Kent for serving as AYCA President, 2020-22

Respect and Gratitude from AYCA’s Outgoing President, Carol Kent

After a two-year term during the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, my American Yacht Charter Association Presidency came to an end on January 1, 2022.

Along with so many other industries, the yacht charter world faced multi-layered challenges during this time. At first, clients weren’t sure how to plan future travel or how to approach plans already made. We all learned together best practices for Covid safety and became well-versed in the ever-changing strategies for keeping clients, crew, and ourselves safe. Clients rescheduled. Travel insurance policies changed. Charter contracts needed addendums. Then quickly, there was a definite uptick in chartering in New England, the Caribbean, Croatia, and Greece – all of which remain hot destinations. AYCA members pooled their energies and resources to give clients the best possible experiences during challenging times.

However, the best aspect of my Presidency was AYCA’s terrific Board of Directors. I had the pleasure of working with these consummate and resourceful professionals who supported our efforts to maintain assurances to our top yacht charter brokers. Choosing a reliable, professional broker is key to a client’s successful charter and to the memories of having fun, re-energizing, and being safe when traveling. To that end, I am proud of the support system that we have built for our valued charter brokers as they serve our valued clients.
