Teacher - Permanent - Min exp 3 years - €between 1.500 and 3.000 / month depending on qualifications - Antigua / Barbuda
We are a Franco-Korean family of two adults and one 8-year-old daughter, on a fast and comfortable 61-foot “Outremer 5X” sailing catamaran, planning their dream of a 3-year-trip around the South Pacific and its beautiful islands and territories.
The boat will be leaving early January 2021 from the Caribbean’s, heading quickly to Panama, and then the Pacific starting with the Galapagos, Easter Island and the French Polynesians islands.
We are looking for a professional and qualified English schoolteacher to take care of our daughter’s education… and to help out with the life on the boat.
We currently live in Portugal, and we are an open-minded multi-cultural family, with several languages spoken at home. In the past, we sailed during 1 year on another catamaran, just the 3 of us when our daughter was 4, crossing the Atlantic twice and visiting 17 countries over 10,000 nautical miles.
We now have a bigger boat and a bigger plan to sail the Pacific for 3 years…
Our daughter will be 9 when we start the journey, and we are looking for a person who can live with us and work full-time on the boat, with the main responsibility to take care of our daughter’s education, and to help out also with the boat choirs.
It will be a full-time 40h/week paid position, with 2 key responsibilities.
The first and most important task, which should represent half of the working time, is to take care of our daughter’s education, following the British Education system (she will be in Year 4 at that time).
The second task, which should represent the second half of the working time, is to cook 1 or 2 meals per day for the 4 of us, and to help with the cleaning of the interior and exterior of the boat.
During your free time, you will be able to enjoy the different toys of the boat (SUPs, kitesurfing, windsurfing, snorkelling, fishing, etc).
We do not specifically need an experienced sailor, but we will be very happy to share our long experience of sailing with someone who wants to learn.
We are looking for someone who can commit to spending at least 6-months, starting the first week of January 2021.
We will start the journey in January 2021 from the Caribbean’s, where the boat will be located at the end of 2020 (most likely St Martin, or La Martinique, or Antigua). The grand plan is to finish the journey 3 years later, at the end of 2023, somewhere in Asia.
Here is a tentative schedule… subject to change:
1st half 2020 Panama, Galapagos, Easter Island, Gambier, Tuamotus
2nd half 2020 Tahiti, Moorea, Tuamotus, Marquises
1st half 2021 Marquise, Tahiti Moorea, Society Islands, Cook Islands, Samoa
2nd half 2021 Wallis & Futuna, Fiji, Tonga, Micronesia
2022 TBD – End of the trip in Asia
The crew will be the 3 of us, plus the person we are looking to fill that position.
The boat is a superb 61-foot catamaran with all comfort (plenty of solar panels, but also generator, fridge, freezer, 3 full-size cabins, audio-video systems, satellite, etc), and many toys and watersport equipment to play with, to enjoy weeks and months in full autonomy in the paradisiac Pacific islands.
