Hello Federico,  The short answer is no. Yacht crewing is pretty much a DIY enterprise and training is via the self improvement route.

If you are looking for a sponsored position or a true maritime college cadet program you will have to look at the commercial maritime industry.

Good luck

Hi Federico. When I was a young guy back in 1975 I signed on a Sail Training vessel. No Pay, room and board, very much fun and learned plenty.. Did a transatlantic and the US Bicentennial . Not sure what happens in the Sail Training world these days, they could be simply charter boats for paying passengers, but you might want to investigate. Sorry about the loss of formating for the links. Dockwalks software is a joke.'_Races
