El intercambio

Programa detallado

This is a great opportunity to experience a different way of life and working. You would learn something about the pros and cons of "living the dream" and running a small business.

If you bring the Competent Crew syllabus, I can work through that with you and stamp it too - so you can learn the basics of sailing and crewing on a boat that will help you on other adventures in the future.

All your on-board expenses are covered (including drinks in moderation) and I pay up to €100 a week bonus (based on average local wage and days worked) at the end of the week if you turn up on time and everything goes well. We split the tips too (not a lot!), so with the bonus you will have enough cash to continue your adventure, or go off for the weekend.

Guests on the trips are expecting to be dazzled by their experience, so skipper and crew need to sparkle - please consider this.


Actividades & Turnos

In peak periods we work Monday to Friday normally (but not always, you may need to be flexible), with boat prep starting at 0900, guests on board from 1100 to 1600, finish at 1700 with a beer, glass of wine, swim, whatever you like. The work is primarily hosting - helping me with boat cleaning, making a cold picnic for guests during the trip, making some drinks, washing everything up. Plus taking photos, steering the boat when required, and other boaty stuff. MUST have good English and be able to chat to guests when needed, but also know when to give them space too. It's a really nice job and you can take lots of breaks to take the helm and admire the view. It's the best commute in the world.

In the mornings and evenings, there is time to go swimming, SUPing, snorkelling and so on. Lots of amazing sunsets, moon rises and lying around on teak deck opportunities!


Reglas

Must have good English, comprehensive travel insurance, be able to swim confidently, and cope with working in the heat, sometimes up to 37 'C in July and August. You need to be fit and healthy and mobile and not too "big" - it's a confined space and an active environment. There is no danger of sea-sickness, the bay is sheltered. Drinking is fine in moderation (one or two after work) but no hangovers on work days, so no drinking after 2100 as a rough rule if we're working the next day. No meat, fish or smoking on board. No princesses, grumps or angry conservatives. Moods need to be managed, there's not enough room for them.

Same rules for me, I believe in equality!

The environment and experience is fantastic but the actual work is domestic, so not suitable for people who haven't done that sort of thing before (most men!). I will ask you for previous experience.
