  • Description


    I have been a Skipper over 30 years now and enjoying being at sea every day.
    I'm currently sailing around the caraibian (Santa Lucia, Grenadines, Dominica, martinique...) on a 15 meter sailing boat, with different groups of young people from everywhere in the world. I am able to manage the boat by myself and don't employ anyone.

    Our trips can go from 3 or 4 days to 2 weeks. We usually go from island to island, doing some snorkeling, visiting the islands and enjoying the Caraibian lifestyle...
    I have been sailing the caraibian over the past 10 years, so I know the good place to go and I enjoy showing it to the guests...

    I am running charters through all the caraibian island with different groups of young people.
    -I need help during the Sailing (managing the sails, share the night watches, anchoring...) you don't need to have experiences just being willing to learn.. I will teach you along the way.
    - cooking (only for the skipper and yourself, the guests are cooking for themself)
    - cleaning and general maintenance of the boat : Helping me between the different cruises to clean the boat entirely, do the Landry and prepare the rooms for the new guests.

  • Accommodation


    Depending on the numbers of guests we have on board, you can sleep on a single bed or in a double cabin :
    If the boat is full, you will sleep on a single bed in the common area.
    if there is an empty cabin, you can use it for yourself.
    Every cruise is different and I always try to do my best to make everyone feels comfortable, depending on who is on board !

    3 meals a day are provided in exchange of your work.
