20 Years in Superyachts for JPMA

In 2017, John Percival Marine Associate celebrates their 20th year in the Superyacht industry.

Hoylake Sailing School Ltd was established in 1996, to run RYA shorebased courses, and very shortly afterwards the Principal, Captain John Percival, was approached to run oral preparation for MCA Deck oral exams.

JPMA was then formed in 1997, to deal solely with the Superyacht sector and since then the company has gone from strength to strength, providing Deck & Engineering training across a wide range of industries including Workboat and Merchant Navy.

JPMA/HSS quickly outgrew their premises and relocated several years later. They now have 9 training rooms, and run almost all of the modules and oral preparation for Deck (OOW and Master) and Engineering (AEC, MEOL, Y4 to Y1) CoCs.

During 2017 JPMA will be running monthly competitions and offers to celebrate their 20th anniversary.


January's competition is 'Who's Who?' - we've put 20 photos on our website of some of the JPMA crew fromĀ 20 years ago (or more, in some cases!). Can you guess who they are? There are multiple choice answers for those who aren't sure, and you can also have a sneaky peek at our JPMA Crew page to see if you recognise any faces.

All 20 answers need to be emailed to mate@hss.ac.uk by 31st January. Correct answers will be put into a draw to win January's prize of a pair of Skullcandy Bluetooth Headphones!

Keep an eye out for competitions and offers on our Facebook page and website: facebook.com/johnpercivalmarineassociates www.sailorsworld.co.uk
