My name is Olly Cardozo, I currently live in North Yorkshire, UK and will be 19 in November 2010. I am planning to take a Gap Year from October 2010 before my law degree begins at Bristol University (UK) in October 2011. During this time, I am looking any for crew or skipper work
anywhere in the world.
I am passionate about sailing and I would ultimately love to get my Yachtmaster qualification and become a professional skipper. I am really seeking during this year both to broaden my knowledge and experience of sailing and to get some good Coastal and Ocean miles in my logbook. I am totally flexible with what opportunities I get and I am prepared to combine sailing work
with other tasks if that suit.
I have taken dinghy
courses for 10 years in Brittany, France
where I have gained a Level 5 French National Instructor qualification. I also compete regularly during my summer holidays on Hobie Cat
18s in French regional regattas.
I started sailing on yachts when I took my RYA Competent Crew in 2008. This inspired me to gain the RYA level 2 Powerboat (ICC) and RYA Day Skipper qualifications this year (2010). So far, I have done a mixture of 1500 Tidal and Non-Tidal miles onboard yachts off the UK coast and in the Mediterranean
, either on courses or recreationally with friends; these include 26 night hours and are all in my logbook. I also have my VHF
I am a fluent French speaker and would welcome working with an international crew or family
. I consider myself physically strong and hard working but I am also looking forward to the ‘team based’ social aspect that is naturally paired to sailing.
