Boat: Everything that has a sail and more

Available for Work this Winter

Hello captains and owners,

First of all, I'm new here, but this seems like a thriving community where a lot is going on. So I decided to post something here.
"Hello Cruisersforum!"

Let me tell something about myself first.

I'm a sailboat captain, and I have extensive experience sailing large charter boats. Every summer I sail with a 120ft sailing barge on the dutch waters. Every day sailing!
In the wintertime I've done several deliveries around the world on sailing yachts and I've been working as an Officer on large square rigged tall-ships.

From november 2011 I'm available to work abroad on a preferably sailing boat as a captain or as crew. I will be available till about end March beginning of April 2012.

My goal is to have a great time so I'm open for al sorts of jobs, and with me my current first mate is also available as crew. We are not a couple, but we manage to work together as a good team. We decided if possible that we will be available together if needed.

My qualifications are:

-UKSA Professional Skipper training graduate with Yachtmaster Offshore/Ocean
-3000GT licence for merchant vessels
-Hospitality course for charterboats

My work experience:

-2,5 years as first mate on a barge
-14 years as a skipper on barges
-3 winters as officer on tallships
-one summer deliveries in the Mediterranean
-delivery of a 55ft yacht from Athens to Sri Lanka
-a lot of experience on classic boats
-painting, varnishing
-engine maintenance
-ships IT

I like teaching people how to sail and especially handle boats and maneuvering in harbours, I like to keep the atmosphere on board as good as possible so that way people will enjoy their work en therefor works the best possible way they can.
I like thinking out of the box, and enjoy solving problems which seem hard to solve.

I hope through this post I get in contact with a captain or owner in need of a crew.
Please people who are just looking for a crew and have no means to pay a wage, do ask, I'm looking for a good time and not money. If the job is nice I'm willing to work for expenses only.
