An adventurous lady with lots of housekeeping/restaurant experience and beginner sailing/deckhand/maintenance skills is looking for work and travel on a private boat, to obtain professional or volunteer position. I am an active, enthusiastic person with a great passion to travel, learn new skills, explore and discover unknown. I have a university degree in economics and management. Years ago I quit corporate career to change it to freedom of travel living, and head off to the high seas to work for the cruise ships During my tenure of working on board cruise ships/floating hotels I acquired various professional experience in housekeeping, restaurant, and accounting services. Years in travel industry helped me to develop hospitality skills and ability to make a difference to the vacation I have made 2 seasons in Europe, 2 summers in Alaska, 1 season in South Asia, numerous times in Caribbean, East and West coasts of the USA. I have been in more than 60 countries and lived in some of them as well. Some of destination include Caribbean, Bermuda, Mediterranean, East and West coast of the USA, Hawaii, Asian coastal cities from Bangkok to Beijing. Working for cruise ships was a lifetime memorable life-transformation experience but it is time to move forward to new journeys, destinations and discoveries. Seeking practical skills in yacht / small boat industry that potentially provides more personalized atmosphere both for guests and for for team, I took an offer to volunteer on a private 42-foot expedition catamaran solo with a captain and his friends, and experience was fascinating.We were sailing and exploring South Florida. My second boat was 58 foot Beneteau Oceanis, we have done Baja Bash passage from Cabo San Lucas to San Diego. It was a great experience, with a great team. My third sailboat, Simple Harmony, was a truly memorable. We maintained the boat, took a good care of it as it was our home with the captain. We sail her From New Port, RI down to Saint Barthelemy, than it was chartered for BVI-USVI. I was in charge of all interior boat operation of the vessel such as cooking, maintaining the cleanness, provisioning, including for the charter etc. I also participated in watch keeping, assisted in sailing, navigating, rope handling, steering and docking the boat. I am able to plan, organize and make decisions to get the task done with minimum of supervision. I hold B1/B2 USA travel visa valid till 2024, C1/D crew visa valid till 2019., French Caribbean Territories visa valid till May 2019 I have crowd management, crisis management, firefighters and other related certificates. I speak English, Russian, Ukrainian and some Spanish. I believe life is full of wonderful moments we create for yourself and others. With time passing by, I start to realize the true value of time more and more. We cannot acquire more or less of our time but can make the best of its quality which depends totally on us I am positive and open minded, outgoing, fun-loving, happy to learn, explore and share. My colleagues said I am mature, motivated, hard-working, responsible person who always applies golden rule into the job, communications and other relations. I love the nature, outdoors, photography, hiking, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and all other water activities. I am free to explore different destinations, meeting new people, sharing the stories and adventures. I am looking for paid crew position Stew/cook/deck on the sailboat, preferably 40-100 feet, with a good team, with good work/life balance. Also may consider volunteer position with exiting itinerary and downtime for learning opportunities (all expenses, including airfare, are covered) . Also would like to participate in sailing, watch keeping, boat maintenance and all related jobs - to apply existing skills and learn new ones. Good vibe with the Captain and team is paramount, does not matter for professional or volunteer arrangement. Looking forward to hearing from you! Safe sailing!
