To whom it may concern.
I hope this finds you well?
Please see below introduction and attached CV:
I grew up sailing on a small dam in Cape town next to the ocean, the first dinghy I owned was a South African designed and built wooden "Dabchick". I learnt to sail on this boat and spent many days, weeks, months and years down at the dam enjoying the sport of sailing and honing my skills. Shortly after getting in to the competitive side of dinghy sailing I began to teach through the same program which got me into sailing. I enjoyed giving back to the community as well as passing my knowledge and passion onto the next generation of sailors in South Africa.
Progressing from dinghies, I stepped onto keel boats at the age of 13. By 15 I had competed in three Lipton Cup Challenges back to back in Cape Town (2007-2009), as well as being selected as the helmsman for 2008 campaign. I have been sailing out of Cape Town in the Atlantic ocean for many years and find comfort at sea, even in the toughest conditions. I am great with people and make the best of ever situation.
In my previous season I worked as a captain aboard a Private 17m sailing yacht. Even though I was the only crew man on board for much of the season, I enjoyed my time and experience running a sailing yacht. However, I am interested in this job as I feel it will provide the necessary experience and act as a stepping stone for me to one day hopefully captain my own 30m+ SY.
I hope the above paragraphs allowed you some insight into the character of person I am, my connection to yachting and direction in which I hope to build my career.
I thank you for your time and consideration.
Hope to hear from you.
