For the future of yachting, look to the east - so says a roundtable of yacht captains hosted by The Triton.
"You've got to follow the money," said one captain at the open discussion. "And right now, the money is coming from Russia, China and South East Asia."
The group lamented that the influx of 'new money' has seen a loss of yachting traditions among owners, and an emphasis on status and interior style over boating performance.
One new skipper suggested that it was the captain's duty to teach novice owners about the traditions of yachting - such as just relaxing and enjoying the experience, rather than keeping to a strict schedule of activities.
Other trends the captains pinpointed for yachting's future include smaller crews with greater certification.
