Personal Statement

I am currently looking for a Permanent or Seasonal Captain’s or Dive Instructor position onshore or onboard a Private or Charter Sailing Yacht. I feel I have a solid foundation as I already have logged 40000nm and have 7 year’s experience in the industry. I am also in position of my RYA Yachtmaster Offshore (200 ton sailing license). I have a strong work ethic, a positive attitude and am a loyal and trustworthy person who works excellent in a team. I am healthy, fit and a quick learner that easily adapts to circumstances. I am an Open Water Scuba Instructor with 500 + logged dives. I have a wide range of experience from diving in Indonesia (Bali, Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Penida & Komodo National Park), South Africa (Cape Town), Fiji (Viti Levu & Vanua Levu), Philippines (El Nido & Coron) and Vanuatu (Port Villa & Espiritu Santo). I have worked on a busy dive charter yacht from 2015 until beginning 2017 where I was the Captain and Divemaster onboard. Taking guests on daily diving and snorkeling excursions and teaching them how to surf, SUP and wake board. I also completed my MCA Approve Engineering Course in order to maintain a yacht even more efficiently. I have experience in surfing, bodyboarding, fishing, spear fishing, free diving, hiking, rock climbing and offshore rigging. I am also a passionate photographer and love to collect footage and edit video clips. I feel I will be a great asset to any team.

Interests

I am a talented bodyboarder, having competed in many events over a period of eleven years. I excelled in this sport obtaining provincial colors. Bodyboarding and surfing has taught me much about wind and swell direction. I have lived next to the ocean all my life learning weather patterns extensively and grown to love everything about the ocean (bodyboarding, sailing, surfing, diving, standup paddle boarding, fishing, spear fishing, snorkeling etc.) Other activities I enjoy are hiking, rock climbing, skateboarding, music, traveling and socializing with friends. I am also a passionate photographer and love to collect footage and edit video clips.
