I'm a very enthusiastic 24year old working over seas. I will be in Sydney
Au in about 3-4 months. While I'm there I'm hoping to take a few sailing courses to get me up to the "competent crew" level. I am relishing the dream working my way around Australia
as a sailor on small private yacht trips and other kinds of Maritime work
. Tours, weekend trips etc. Some day I want to sail around the world... although that is a long time away.
So my 2 questions are... Does my immediate goal of getting some training and picking my way around Aus as a competent crew member
sound feasible? and.. How easy is it in general to find work
on a boat
in which I would actually be doing some real sailing and not chipping paint
and scrubbing toilets?
Thanks a ton!!
