Looking for a Captain, 1st Mate, Bosun or Racing position

I am a passionate professional sailor with strong communication skills and a solid work ethic.

I have worked, raced and cruised on yachts professionally for over 7 years. I began my career in Australia on racing and cruising yachts then progressed onto super yachts in the Mediterranean and Worldwide.
