Looking for a Captain, Cook, or 1st Mate positions for 2024
I'm looking for a voluntary or paid position starting sometimes in 2024.
I've worked as a cruising instructor and delivery skipper in my younger days and had a French merchant navy qualification then (now well out of date). I have been maintenance manager for a fleet of seven cruising boats, the biggest of them 12 m, and I've owned many boats, so I'm pretty good at boat repair and maintenance.
I am a good cook (vegetarian / vegan) with extensive professional experience in this field (I still part own a small vegetarian restaurant).
I know the coast of Europe from Scotland to Gibraltar pretty well. I have also cruised extensively in the Caribbean between Grenada and Anguilla as well as in the Western Mediterranean.
I am looking for a voluntary or paid position as a skipper, 1st mate or cook from anywhere in Europe.
I'm very adaptable, easy going and kind and will fit well in most crew, but I will not sail with smokers or heavy drinkers. Being a father of two (now grown up), I'm fine with kids.
I'm perfectly bilingual French and English, and I am currently learning Spanish.
