Deckhand (Motor or Sail)

2 years (prof.) experience; motor and sail (from Leopard 44 to Codecasa 164); Yachtmaster Coastal; AEC; B1/B2

Have worked on both sail and motor yachts. My last job was as permanent crew for a year on a M/Y Codecasa 164, in Mexico. I have done two deliveries to date, one from Cape Town (South Africa) to Tortola (BVI); the other from Antigua to West Palm Beach.

I'm quite flexible, in terms of it being permanent, temporary (min. 3 months or a delivery), or rotational work. I'm currently based in South Africa, but happy to negotiate the costs of a ticket. Ideally looking for a boat this is quite high energy (and that travels), but am also happy for shore-based work if it's an interesting place.
