Looking for a Captain, 1st Mate, Bosun or Sailing instructor position

Originally from the Isle of Wight- I grew up sailing in The Solent, English channel and among the tidal gates and rocks of the beautiful Brittany coast. I have an excellent customer service record, both with my guests while on charter and in my previous career in hospitality. Sadly hurricane Irma put an end to the Sunsail sailing school in the BVI, most skippers from Sunsail in the Med apply for this role. I was offered the job twice and had plans for a third season. I am experienced enough to have a good knowledge engineering and yacht systems, but I appreciate everyday is a learning day. I have skippered monohulls up to 54f and catamarans up to 48f but have crewed on bigger. I also co-own a Gaff Cutter, a Heard 28 named Carlotta with my father (12f bowsprit).
