We are a young American couple (ages 24 & 25). We have been traveling through SE Asia for the past six months and will be heading to Europe at the beginning of April. We would like to extend our travels and find work crewing on a yacht this summer in the Mediterranean. We both have extensive ocean-related experience. Megan has her Master's degree in Marine Policy and has lots of experience on small motor vessels gained during her research for her degree. She also has both her advanced and rescue SCUBA certifications. In addition to boating experience, she has significant experience working with small children, as a marine science teacher, tutor and nanny.
Matt graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in history. Following graduation, he worked as a sailing instructor and boat captain at a watersports center in Miami, FL. He is also lifeguard & CPR certified. He is highly experienced in many water sports including surfing, windsurfing, kayaking and sailing.
While neither of us has ever worked professionally on a large yacht, we have spent several summers sailing on monohull 30-40' sailboats in locations such as the BVIs and Greece. We are confident in our abilities to perform well in the yachting environment. We are both highly motivated and quick learners. We are non-smokers, organized, and highly efficient. We enjoy traveling, experiencing new cultures and meeting new people. We would like to work in a relaxed, but professional environment and are open to both paid and non-paid positions.
