Connecting skippers and sailing crew and building a sailing community
I need an enthusiastic chef/Stew to help onboard. Prepping the interior after yard time and for a few weeks sailing in the Grenadines. Please dont apply if you get seasick or cannot cook whilst underway in the galley of a sailboat. Lovely fully equipped sailboat. Currently in the Southern Caribbean.
I saw your profile & am applying for your chief/stew position. I have a passion for sailing, love cooking & understand the importance of high quality service & keeping everyone on board happy.
I have recently returned from crewing on a transatlantic/transmed sailboat crossing (June & July 2014) Beneteau 473. Ports of call included: Sint Maarten, Bermuda, Azores, Gibraltar, Spain, Sicily & Greece. Last summer I took a 5 month internship in Philadelphia, PA aboard a 48’ Schooner (lived aboard & only crew on the boat) May-Oct 2013. We did seven 90 minute tours per day. As Dock Master & Lead of Operations at Freedom Boat Club, I managed 5 staff & maintained a 7 boat fleet (March 2012-May 2013).
My boating experience includes: helmsman, sail trim, watch keeping, deckhand, handling lines & fenders, helping launch/drive/retrieve the tender, provisioning the boat with food, menu planning, cooking, laundry, interior upkeep, exterior washing & wipe down (chamois), helping with fueling & pump out, & basic navigation that included watching the paper charts as we proceeded with GPS.
I am from NC, USA, which equates to hospitality & a little southern accent. I am neat, professional, respectful, take pride in my work & always an active member of the team. Laughing & smiling consume my personality. I enjoy being a part of life’s adventure & am happiest when I am busy or dancing. I would appreciate the opportunity to talk with you about how I can become an asset to your team.
Look forward to hearing back from you,
