Carly.jade: I arrived a couple of days ago to Saint Martin/Caribbean!!!
I traveled by sea/ ocean to here :) just under 5000nm
From frejus in the south of France on a black sea yacht 57, an amazing journey at the beginning of October all the way to Lanzarote, ( for a couple of nights) then to Gran Canaria....I worked as a deckhand and massage therapist, cook and cleaner for 1 owner and 6 crew on board, with a 3 hour on 3 hour off watch, I did 96 night hours in my log book :)...We experienced the wildness of the Mediterranean, Gail winds force 8-9 up to 5m waves and 45 knot winds....a really powerful experience....From Gran Canaria I joined a catarmaran for the Atlantic crossing- lagoon 620....A beautiful boat, a pleasure to be apart of the crossing... I was employed as a massage therapist/ stewardess....... Cooking and cleaning for all the crew and the owner, and only massaging the owners. Night hours were not apart of my duty, but as keen as mustard that I am, I volunteered myself for the 3-6am night shift...the most exciting, beautiful, powerful way to fully be in the experience..it took us 18 days to do the crossing..
So I'm on the French side of st Martin right now and very keen to find my next boating experience/ employment....I have done the charter season in Panama last year, so I also have chartering experience.....I'm Australia without an stcw 95 certificate as I've always had private boats, however I'm willing to do the course asap!!!
I'm open to circumnavigation, or island cruising...I'm happy to have long term employment or be a deliver or as a temporary crew...
I've worked on a private island resort in the whitsundays, as a massage therapist/ hostess....only working with wealthy people...I'm well trained in silver service...
I'm missing the boat life already and will start connecting with the boats and sailors on the island....
