Looking for A FABULOUS FUN SKIPPER (AND CREW), WILLING TO TAKE ON A KEEN AND ENTHUSIASTIC NOVICE...;-)!!
Hi, my name's Zoe and I've just joined Crewbay. I'm (ideally) hoping to find a great sailing boat, catamaran and/or motor yacht, based in warm waters over the winter, with an experienced skipper who'd be willing to give a fun, adventurous and hard-working girl a go! 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, following a life-changing move to Devon three years ago, purposely to be by the sea, I now also volunteer as a crew member on a local heritage sailing ketch. Therefore, I fully understand the importance of keeping a clean and tidy ship, respecting the decision of the skipper (and all other crew members) 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 (although am now in Australia for 2 months in Cairns) and run my own, very successful Event Management Company, which I set up three years ago after ditching the corporate world and London life, for a grounded healthy life by the sea! 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 to my happy place - the sea! I'm now in an extremely fortunate position in that, I'm set up financially for life and work as and when I want to all over the world, able to cherry pick the jobs that I love and only for about 6-8 months of the year. The rest of the time I dedicate to travelling, which is one of my greatest passions, but also one I love to share... I'm single, with no children (and have zero commitments) so therefore, being able to find a boat to hop on with easy-going, like-minded, fun sailing peeps would be my absolute ideal. 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) and having lots of fun along the way... 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! ;-) Zoe
