I have worked in many conditions and on a variety of vessels. I currently hold well over 4,000 sea miles.
My love of the sea makes it easy for me to enthuse about my work. This drives me to reach only the highest standards.
As a stalwart crew I can work efficiently and safely to consistently exceed
goals and further my continual development within the marine sector.
My impeccable boat handling skills, experience, implementation and persistent progression will prove invaluable to your company.

Desperately seeking a Skipper / Captain who is:

Position (1st): Recreational Crew
Position (2nd): Deckhand
Age: 41

oceans11: Sympathetic, patient, kind, understanding, adaptable in their approach to teaching /
to help a damsel in distress with her sails!! (in exchange for boat work perhaps - i.e. de fouling, painting, sanding, etc.)
Basically I strive to do my best in life, I have a passion for the water and want to follow this totally, with all of my heart in every direction.
I am intelligent with some things and extremely slow / dyslexic (at first) with others.
When taking my Day Skipper:
My lovely instructor said that he passed me because I excelled in some areas and other areas I struggled to grasp the concept of.
In other areas:
My instructor was letting me moor up against pontoons, said that my helm work was great, especially at night, but said that I need practice somewhere afterwards with sails / ropes.
Therefore I am looking for:
A knight in shining armour who would be exceptionally patient so I have no fear (till I grasp this at least, then it wouldn't bother me what was said), who would let me raise and lower the main, genoa, in a bay or somewhere suitable to practice this until I finally grasp it.
I am hoping desperately that there is a person out there. If you are, please message me on and give me your thoughts.
An example:
It took me rather a long time to learn how to drive - my instructor even said 'some people aren't meant to drive' - I never gave up, as with everything I do. However I knew myself inside out to know that I would get there, as I have with everything. I passed my test 23 years ago and have driven everything from a motorbike through to a very large van for removals (maybe 30 different types of cars), can drive abroad with ease, and in a left hand drive car too. That is how I am with the things I am slow with at first.
So as with sailing - my confidence WILL grow with the right person to guide / teach me, and I know eventually I will excel. PLEASE HELP !!!!!! :)
I am currently staying in Maidstone, Kent, and am willing to travel anywhere. Thanks for reading.


Sailors couple

Position (1st): Amateur crew
Position (2nd): Diver
Age: 28
Nationality: Spanish
Location: Guatemala
Last logged in: 43 minutes ago

Lucvicente: We are an amateur couple passionate for sailing. We took a certification course at Marina del Rey, LA (ASA 101 to ASA 104) and after that, we fell in love even more with our dream of sailing around the world. Currently we are looking for experiences that will take us on the right road to eventually buying our own sailboat. We are leaving behind every attachment that might stop us from achieving our dream, like our corporate jobs, friends and family, in search of new adventures and a never ending journey that satifies our wounderlust souls. Fortunately we are financially stable due to business ownerships we leave fully functioning. As future crew members we can do common home duties (cleaning, cooking, laundry, etc) as well as learning anything if needed. We love diving (currently we have the Rescue Diver certification), rock climbing, hiking, and any outdoors activities really. You can visit our blog wich is in spanish or contact for more info :)

Tazzy999: Please see my Curriculum Vitae for your reference, meanwhile:
I have completed RYA Competent Crew practical examination in 2012, Day Skipper practical in August 2013 and RYA Day Skipper theory in April 2014. I have worked with a range of people from all walks of life which has given me strengths and experiences that have contributed to my well balanced and steady make up. Sailing adventures i.e. short trips and world cruises appeal to me and excite me greatly, as do other positions such as nannying onboard a boat., I have completed a 3 month placement, working on a boat moored in Stuart, Florida, for a family of which one member is sick. The tasks were caring, cooking, housekeeping, some above and below deck cleaning and nannying. I have also just arrived back from a sailing trip starting at Milford Haven and ending at Liverpool, of which I completed 5 full nights sailing and 7 day sails.
