Im a professional athlete, and after retirement
in 5 years i want to change lifestyle.
I got a little sailing backround, because my father was olympic sailor, i got an Hunter
Impala 28 in Lake Balaton Hungary. I sailed couple of weeks on Adriatic
, but i want so much more.
I already started to learn for sailing at sea more and more. In the Academy i started is very similar to RYA training
,very thorough on paper and on sea also, so i thinking about aiming some RYA certification
after my regular licences. I really want to cruise
and see as much i can in this amazing world.
If everything goes as i planned im going to have some savings,but i want to upgrade to a little bigger boat
to live aboard for months/years. I can live on budget
and i enjoy simple life a lot. My goal isnt to make millions of dollars.
But i need income
for sure, so my questions is:
Is anbody who can share some opinions or experiences who has RYA? I kknow requirements.
I trying to get as much information i can get for after.
Easy or hard to find jobs with RYA certification
? For me obviously in Europe
Long term/short term jobs? Is there anyone for example who to works during season/summer and travel after? Possible to work
1-2 years and after travel for a while and look for jobs again? Etc.. Anything like that.
(im trying to learn and get enough experience to organize some weekly trips to Adriatic
at summers in 3-4 years for a start)
But for now i study and looking for imformation how can i create life around cruising to see the world and working in sailing also from time to time.
Thank you for the anwers!
Have a great day
