Looking for a Competent Crew, 1st Mate, Racing, Deckhand or Delivery Crew position
Hi, I'm interested in finding a position as a Competent Crew, 1st Mate, Racing, Deckhand or Delivery Crew. I fall in love with sailing at a young age. I have the Competent Crew (RYA) certificate; the Day Skipper Theory Certificate (RYA/MCA), and the Diesel Engine (RYA) certificate. I'll have the DS Practical by the end of April. I would go on my own too, but if needed, my wife could join me; She can handle most of the duties on deck, plus catering. (We have EU passports.) I feel confident about working on a sailing yacht professionally.
I booked the VHF Radio course. By May, I will have my Day Skipper certificate as well.
My strengths aboard are (as my instructors wrote about me under the section 'Strengths' on their Instructor Debrief document):
Riccardo R.: Great helmsman; Wind awareness/Points of sail; Very keen sailor.
Tom L.: Points of sail; Helming; Wind awareness; Knot/Ropework.
Will H.: Good sailor; Helming good; Points of sail; Very aware of wind & surroundings; Good at keeping watch; Dingy work very good.
My hobbies are sailing, travelling, reading, skiing, horseback riding, tennis and kayaking.
I look forward to meeting some new people!
