**Seeking Deckhand Position / Paid Work**
I am an outgoing 26 year old qualified sailing Day Skipper with 3 years of sailing experience and a lot of long passages, night-watches and sea miles logged. Although all of my sailing so far has been for pleasure, I am now looking to begin a career at sea. I will shortly be receiving my ENG1 certificate and completing an STCW95 course. I have hospitality experience, working with royalty, and silver service experience with certificates in Food Safety Level 2, Health and Safety Level 2, Fire training and Food Allergens. I grew up sailing dinghies as a kid, and have been sailing sea-going yachts for three years, completing my Day Skipper qualification within that time. Over the past year i have crossed the Bay of Biscay three times, the English Channel a handful of times and have been cruising around England, France, Spain, Portugal and Morocco on both sailing monohulls and catamarans. I am seeking a position as deckhand as I really enjoy the hands-on sailing side of things, willing to take part in all aspects such as navigation and passage planning, watches, day-to-day sailing, sail-trimming and helming, cooking, cleaning and all things in between. I enjoy sailing as much as I do adventuring ashore and on the water be it fishing, surfing, kayaking, stand-up-paddle boarding, snorkelling, skateboarding or hiking. I am a non-smoker and will be available from the end of July.
