Looking for a captain or officer position depending on the size of the vessel.

I have windsurfed, sailed dinghies and hobiecats since 1993. I have 1 crossing and around 28.000 miles under my belt within the med, atlantic and adriatique seas for races, owner cruises, charters and deliveries in all type of yachts up to 32 mts. I do manage refits, understand about engineering, team building and management, clerical works, flags and private/commercial transitions, budgeting. I am not afraid of getting dirty or support my crew wherever necessary since we are running an operation either private or commercial.

I do have a master 499 GT and all necessary documents.

I am actually working as a project/manager - temp captain on a 27 mt expedition yacht that I joined soon after supervising the refit of a 24 mt wooden sailing yacht.
