Looking for a skipper position
Hi, my name is Jakob. I'm 29 years old born in Belgium.
Im a passionate sailor with 40.000+ NM sailing experience, from the baltic 55ºN to Cape Horn 55ºS. both single- and shorthanded on all types of boats.
I'm looking for a position as skipper. I have 1 year experience working as a charter skipper on a bavaria 46 doing day and weektrips in Rhodes. So far I have rounded 2 of the great capes: Cape horn and Cape of good hope and sailed 5 ocean crossings within 14 months.
My strengths are navigating, sextant, boatwork, mechanical, sail repairs, rigging, emergency repairs, and everything else witch needs to be done onboard.
I speak fluent English, French, Dutch and Spanish
Thanks to previous job experiences in kitchens and hospitality I feel as confident on deck as below.
As a boat owner I fully understand the importance and value of your boat to you.
I know the importance of the safety of the crew / passengers, and to avoid any unnecessary stress on equipment and materials.
Hope to hear from you soon,
