Looking for A FABULOUS FUN SKIPPER, WILLING TO TAKE ON A KEEN AND ENTHUSIASTIC NOVICE...;-)!!
Hi, I’m Zoe and (ideally) hoping to find a great sailing boat, catamaran and/or motor yacht, based in Antigua/Caribbean, with an experienced skipper who'd be willing to give a fun, adventurous and free-spirited hard-working girl a chance! Alternatively, I'm great fun and easy-going if you're just looking for good company and someone to share the adventure with!!
Even though I'm a novice, I definitely have sea legs (and very luckily, do not suffer with sea sickness, in fact, I think I have a stomach of iron!) and have been on boats all my life, in many various forms and different seas.
As a child I lived in my local sailing club, then worked as a stewardess on a super yacht in Antibes in my early travelling years and have been on various sailing boats and motor yachts ever since. Additionally, I fully understand the importance of keeping a clean and tidy ship, respecting the decision of the skipper and living in small, confined spaces - working and laughing together as a team to get the job done!
A bit about me...
I currently live in the UK (London), although will be in Antigua from 3 October 2021 onwards, with a very rough plan to gain some sailing experience and maybe move there and/or buy a boat there, with the intention of then exploring the neighbouring islands/coastlines. This obviously depends on the situation and opportunities/options available when I arrive.
Basically, I'd love to buy a 4 berth catamaran and run charters on it 6 months of the year and then sail off on adventures for the other 6 months of the year and then just see what happens and where the waters take me.... Obviously, I'd need to gain a lot of sailing experience beforehand and additionally find a great, experienced fun skipper (also up for the adventure!) if this were to happen. Are you out there...??
In the meantime, I have an Event Management Company in the UK, which I set up four years ago after ditching the finance world, which now luckily allows me to go off grid whenever and wherever I want to (Covid restrictions permitting of course!!), although I may wind this up in Antigua if I don't use it to run charters. Previously I was a Global Head of Events in Investment Banking... a long story (and one I'm very happy to share), however for the sake of keeping this relatively brief, basically realised there was a lot more to life than just working and decided to escape! I'm now in an extremely fortunate position in that, I'm set up financially for life (although I'm not materialistic at all) and just ready for my next adventure and to see what Antigua can offer.
I'm single, with no children (and have zero commitments) so am able to hop straight on a boat with easy-going, like-minded, fun sailing peeps should the opportunity arise. As a sociable bunny, I love company and being able to share all experiences, as well as laugh and cry at them (good and bad) at the same time and have lots of fun along the way.... Travelling and water are my biggest passions in life and I love experiencing them to the full, in whatever capacity, culture and/or environment they may be in!
If I sound like someone you may be interested to know more about... please do not hesitate to contact me straight away if you’d like more info/details on me!
Thank you in advance for reading, I look forward to hearing from you! ;-)
