Work experience

Nov 2009Present

Jewel, 67 foot sailing yacht

Extended day work on Jewel, this day work has seen the boat come from the boat yard from re-fit, to becoming ready to sail to Antigua. The work included both exterior and interior work, from moving the boat, to helping fit the mast, to detailing cabins, heads, saloons as well as washing down the deck. I worked closely with the captain to ensure that work was completed as he desired and in a timely and organised manner.

Interior cleaning for boat show

Buccarella, 60m Superyacht

This day work included precise detailing in order to ensure the boat was ready for the boat show and prospective buyers. Working closely in a team, we organised and detailed cabins and heads, galley, saloons and the bridge. We worked under instruction from the Chief Stewardess, but also had to work under our own initiative due to the time pressures.

Primary teacher

Willow Brook Primary School

I was responsible for the teaching and welfare of a class of 8 and 9 year children, many with behaviour difficulties, which proved a real challenge, but one I found exxtremely rewarding.

P.E. Teacher

St. Mary's School for Girls

I was responsible for a class of girls in this preparatory school and co-ordinated the P.E. This involved organising sports day, swimming galas, cross country and weekly fixtures. The parents were often demanding but liaising with them proved great experience and very rewarding as we worked together toward a common goal.

Phil Taylor

Phil was captain of the boat that I have been working extensively on from late October until present. I worked closely with him, to ensure that the boat was ready for sailing to Antigua for charter, having just come out of re-fit.


I am looking for an entry level stewardess and/or deckhand position on a sailing boat or powerboat. Ideally I would like to work on a sail boat as a joint stew/deckhand, to use the knowledge I have gained from the courses I have recently taken and the experience I have gained during day work. As I am a qualified teacher, I would alternatively be interested in tutoring on board.
