Martin Smith's Online Resume
Ambition statements: 1. To gain engineering experience and qualifications on vessels > 24m. 2. Complete Yachtmaster Ocean qualification. 3. Expand divemaster experience, with a view to complete PADI IDC. I am a Commercially Endorsed RYA/MCA Yachtmaster (Offshore), AEC holder and have sailed as a watch leader across the Atlantic twice. At 16 years old, I joined the British Army and trained as a vehicle mechanic; becoming a specialist in diesel engines, hydraulics, battle tanks and heavy plant equipment. I have been sailing for over 10 years and have experience on sloops, cutters and schooners up to 24m. As a cruising instructor and PADI divemaster I am comfortable teaching others to sail and lead SCUBA dives respectively. My broad water sport experience comes from working at both land and sea- based summer camps, providing me with great tender driving experience. My time at university was spent gaining a Master of Science in Sports Coaching and a Postgraduate Certificate in Primary School Education. Currently, I am the Engineer/Mate on board a private Oyster 625, where I am responsible for routine maintenance and repairs.
