Dear Shipmates

Introduction

Sailing is a passion, a dream worth living. Goal is to one day have a beautiful boat I can call my own. Til then, I'm willing and wanting to learn all I can for as long as I can. I'm a quick learner, work well with my hands, think on my feet as well as think out the box and not afraid to get dirty. Can help wherever need be and have the experience both on boats and in life to get it done.
I do want to further my career, build miles, obtain yachtmaster offshore and further onwards.
It's not about the money, it's the dream worth living.

Formal intro below:
I am seeking a position as a Deckhand/Stewardess on a private or charter yacht and am focused on growing, learning,completing my Yachtmasters Licenses and progressing within this exciting industry. I have greatly invested into this newcareer and having background experience in accounting and in logistics, I am used to working long hours within a high-pressure environment, detail orientation and always committed to pleasing my clients.

I am a friendly, affable, kind, empathetic and a hardworking individual with a belief that team work is integral for a successful outcome. My strengths/skills include: a keen eye for detail, self-motivated, highly dependable, moral and being punctual. I am a fun-loving, adventurous, hands-on person with an enthusiasm for whatever work I am assigned to do. My good communication skills, coupled with a great sense of humour provide me with the ability to easily get along with people of all background.

My motivation and reasons to crew on a boat

There is an unexplainable feeling that comes from being on a boat on the water. Working hard and playing harder. There is no motivation or reasons other than that feeling for wanting to crew on a boat. Oh, and learn something new everyday!
