I am available for a crewing position anytime after September 2021.

Hello, For many years I have worked in my family business as restaurant manager for a lovely eco resort in Ireland and now I'm taking a break to do something different for a few years or until I take it over. I'm a competent person in all aspects of hospitality and I can easily form a good connection with people. I love to travel. And over the past few years i have developed a big love for the sea and boat life. One day I would like to own my own boat. I’m easy going, transparent, curious and respectful, hard working, eager to learn and up for an adventure. February 2019 I worked for a family for 3 weeks in the BVI as hostess/deckhand on a 58f catamaran ( Reference available). I helped move a beautiful Amel Maramu from Martinique to St.Maarten December 2019. November 2018 I sailed as part of a crew during a 4 month transatlantic (Canaries, Cape Verdes, Senegal, Caribbean) my duties were watch keeping, cooking, cleaning and having fun. In January I volunteered on a refit for the tall ship "tres hombres" as cook for a large crew of 30. I enjoy hard work and a challenge. Any chance I get I'll do something new and exciting.
I sailed with my dad for many summer holidays when I was little. I have recently completed a successful RYA day skipper and navigation course. I'm about to start work on my dad's sail boat to get her back in the water soon for some fun this summer. I also love horses, carriage driving, kayaking, snowboarding, camping, glamping, reading psychology books, freedom and great connections.
I love meeting new people. I'm looking for a paid position or volunteer work.
Please get in touch if you like my vibe :)
