Deliveries from Oct/Nov 2020 onwards


How are you and what are you looking for?

Ideally I would like to find a position on a sailing vessel starting in October or November 2020 with New Zealand as a final destination, but for the right vessel I can deviate from this and fly to NZ after the contract is finished. NZ is not a destination used by the vessels I have worked on, hence I'm trying my luck here.

From April till October I'm working as first mate/hospitality manager on a Tallship sailing all over Northern Europe, hence I won't be available immediately. This will be my third contract with them and looking forward to it, although I'm currently still enjoying summer and work in New Zealand.

Prior experience include contracts as a purser in the Med and Caribbean, bosun in the Caribbean, but also first stewardess in the Med and deckhand in the Baltic and Northsea. All on sailing vessels ranging from 50 meters to 109 meters. Some with 5 star luxury and some more down to earth. I like both, as long as it's done well.

Offshore and harbour racing has been an exciting part of my life for multiple years as well, as it combined beautifully with I my landbased job in windy Wellington, NZ.

Feel free to contact me for more information, a cv or simply to say hi.

Have a great day,

(pronounced Sugar to make it easier)
