About & Hobbies

  • Yachtmaster, commerically endorsed
  • 2 years experience (70m+)
  • Strong tender driver
  • Watersports enthusiast
  • Charter experience

Driven by an enthusiasm for the challenges of adventure, I am excited to continue what I hope will be a long and fulfilling career in the world of superyachting. I would consider myself to be relaxed, confident and patient when working in a demanding environment.

Over the past few years I have gained experience on vessels ranging from a 60m Trinity to a 90m Lürssen. Having passed my Yachtmaster exam, I intend to commit to a well run vessel and progress towards becoming an officer.

Recently, I completed a 3000 mile row across the Atlantic Ocean. The project involved an ambitious two year long campaign to fundraise £100,000 and bring together a crew of four total strangers. As skipper, the expedition tested my strengths to their absolute limit but above all taught me the value of determination, teamwork and humility.

Experience

1 - 2 years professional yachting experience

Detailed Experience

7th Mar 2020 - 14th Apr 2021 (1 year, 1 month)

  • Deckhand
  • on a 72m (236ft) yacht called Locked

Working on a large, structured vessel has taught me how to execute deck operations under thorough protocol. This was true in most aspects; whether that was safety drills pertaining to firefighting, rescue boat launching, emergency steering or more regular procedures such as mooring, craning and anchor operations. I received tender driving training in busy ports such as Antibes and St Tropez, on board a 9m twin engine Chris Craft and 8m Nova Marine tender. My officers remarked on my ability to manoeuvre and come alongside in unfavourable conditions.During the pandemic, we spent two and a half months on standby in isolation, for the owner’s trip. The deck crew were tasked with maintaining the yacht’s presentation to an immensely high standard for the entire duration. It was a challenge of endurance and professional discipline. We became very efficient at washdowns and in particular I became proficient at working in a harness over the side and up the mast. Detailed communication within and between large departments was a common theme onboard and has encouraged good habits I will carry forward into the future.

17th Jan 2020 - 30th Jan 2020 (14 days)

  • Deckhand
  • on a 92m (302ft) Sailing Yacht called Locked

Filling in for an injured deckhand, I spent two weeks as part of the crew during an owner's trip, cruising around various Caribbean islands. The experience gave me a good appreciation for the level of standards and etiquette that need to be upheld when on charter. I was assigned various duties such as anchor watches, tender setups and walking two very lively Jack Russells.

15th Dec 2019 - 15th Jan 2020 (1 month, 1 day)

  • Deckhand
  • on a 55m (180ft) Motor Yacht called Locked

Starting in the deep end, I was lucky enough to temp on two back-to-back charters, spanning three weeks over the festive period. As part of a new crew, I was forced to take on a challenging level of responsibility. This afforded me the opportunity to contribute my thoughts towards the organisation and daily running of the operation. We catered to the demands of a wide range of guests, varying from families with young children through to show business personalities who kept us busy late into the night. Activities heavily revolved around watersports such as jet skiing, tubing, paddling and water sliding; and beach barbecue setups along with numerous guest tender runs. It was exhausting work but I loved it every minute and I hope to find something equally demanding in the future.
