PaulaG: I'm a certificated skipper with the spanish yachtmaster offshore titulation, which allows to sail a boat until 24 meters and 150 miles from coast. Having held a variety of positions including chef, deckhand, first mate and most recently skipper, I am now seeking to focus solely on deck work; however I am strongly committed to the ethos of teamwork as such am willing and able to use the range of skills I have developed to assist interior crew when necessary.
In addition to my previous yachting experience, I studied architecture and now I'm developing a blog and a youtube channel. I believe that my knowlegde about several programs, social network, website design and my sense in organization contribute to my suitability for a position helping to develop a private project with brochures, websites or management.
When I discover the cruising lifestyle I found fascinating the fact of being self-sufficient with no dependence of freshwater and electricity, always in contact with nature and having the opportunity to travel to places you could not reach otherwise. Passionate about the exploration voyages and with great curiosity in the world of tourism and adventure. I am greatly charmed with the cruising lifestyle.
I'm open to new plans and destinations, I really like new challenges.
I don't smoke and take care about alimentation, I prefer eating healthy food rather than trash food. I love both mountain and sea sports, such as running, bicycling, climbing, fishing, swimming, diving, kayaking, kitesurfing, ... Although I am very sportive, another of my passions is reading and lately I also started to write.
I speak spanish, english, catalan, portuguese and basic french.
