Absolutely wonderful to be able to share news of a clean sweep for "Team SYM" at the 2020 A-Crew awards with Captain Nathan McFadyen from Volpini 2 winning the "Captain Master 3000" award and Captain Jason McCormack from Berco Voyager winning the "Captain Master 500" award!
We couldn’t be more proud of these guys, both of whom are incredibly well deserving winners, who have over 15 years combined experience, working within our team. Both Jason and Nathan joined SYM as First Officers, before working their way up to running two of our finest yachts.
“One of the foundation beliefs and key tenet of SYM Superyacht Management is the encouragement and support of captains and crew members as they progress their careers, and these awards are a real testament to the success of this approach ” said Ben Young who added “Nathan and Jason both represent the very best of the industry and we are delighted to be able to celebrate their success – well done!"
Each category had 18 nominees, and our guys faced some incredibly tough competition going head-to-head with the other outstanding finalists.
The Crew Awards were developed as the first ever impartial, international awards program to reward crew that have proven themselves to be the very best at their job, and we are confident the judges made the right choice!
Well done to A-Crew for managing to maintain the awards ceremony despite the obvious challenges of 2020.
