I feel very strongly about pursuing a career in the yachting industry.

I am currently based in Palma de Mallorca but I am more that happy to travel to wherever I may be needed.

I would love to get a deckhand job on board a motor or sailing yacht. I want to become a valuable member of the crew through using my out going personality and can-do attitude to learn more about the deckhand role on board a yacht and to form new relationships with my fellow crew members.

I am confident in my tender driving abilities and after having done a month of daywork this season I feel as though I have a good foundation from which to build my knowledge of the different deck procedures and products.

I am a hard working and respectful individual with a great desire to learn and develop myself as a deckhand and as a person.

I hold the following certification:
- RYA Day Skipper Practical (commercially endorsed)
- RYA Day Skipper Theory
- YOA Deckhand Course
- RYA Competent Crew
- RYA Tender Operations
- RYA Powerboat level 2
- RYA SRC VHF Radio Course
- RYA Diesel Engine Maintenance
- RYA Personal Watercraft Proficiency
- Professional Practice and Responsibilities Exam
- Full STCW
- ENG1
- British Passport
