Captain Daz Pettus

I'm seeking a permanent position on a large sailing yacht with congenial people. I take pride in maintaining a vessel to a high standard with a hands on approach. I don't like giving orders, but rather help or demonstrate to the crew how to do an excellent job. Throughout my life I have maintained a high level of physical fitness and most people think I am 10 to 20 years younger than my actual age. Humour and adventure are strong components of my personality, and I always enjoy meeting interesting people. I have an abundance of maritime credentials and blue water experience >50,000nm.
