Looking for commercial work

I am a Commercial rated RYA Yachtmaster (Offshore) rated to 200 tons. I hace ca. 10,000nm logged.
I have the basic STCW qualification, MCA Food Safety and the RYA Power Boat Level 2.
I have completed a ca. 5,000nm Transatlantic Crossing in April/May/June 2022 as the 1st Mate, as part of my RYA Yachtmaster (Ocean).

I have also completed a 900nm delivery from La Rochelle (France) to Gibraltar in a Bali 4.1 (cat.) Catamaran in May 2019 and a 2,750nm trip from Croatia to the Canary Islands, Spain in FP 41ft catamaran from early July to the end of August 2019.
My duties consisted of preparing the yacht for sail, provisioning, watch leader, watch keeping, cleaning, cooking, and maintenance.
I have no food restrictions, a non-smoker with no drama.

I hold an RYA Yacht Master of Yachts (200gt) Commercial, with ca. 10,000nms and over 90 nights at sea.

I am also actively seeking additional coastal/offshore/ocean sailing experience.

My wife and I are planning to purchase a 45 to 56ft cat. within the next 5 years and I wish to take as many, extended trips on various cats as possible.
We will operate the cat as our 2nd/3rd home (Hamburg/St Anton, Austria), placing a Capt./crew on it while we are away.

I am an officer in the Australian Army (Captain) and have both military (combat) and civilian (wilderness) first aid training.
My military skills include field operations, training, administration, command and control, operations planning, logistics, combat first aid, and evacuations, operating solo and in a team environment.

I can offer demonstrated:
• strong interpersonal skills
• perfect knowledge of English
• flexibility, coach-ability, and a wish to grow, learn and improve
• ability to deal with a crisis in an efficient & effective manner
• a positive attitude, along with organization and service spirit
• good knowledge of engines, and systems
• always remaining calm and professional
• experience as a professional service provider

I look forward to discussing this opportunity with you soon.

Kind regards
Colin Newland
