Help Needed

Hi all,

I am after a little help and am spreading my net far and wide in the hope of finding out exactly what I need.

I am after some pointers to resources/websites/companies that may be able to help me,

In July, my house contract ends as does my current job, after travelling last year I seriously want to get out and try something new, at least while I am young (well 25 now), to see what else is out there.

I have always had an interest in the sea and want to now develop that into maybe a career or maybe a career break doing some sailing (looking at areas such as private charter yachts, delivery, day trip boats/diving boats)

I have always had an interest in the sea, coming from a naval family in a coastal town, I have very little experience in sailing but I have the qualifications listed below. I understand that what I really need to do is get some work on a yacht as a deckhand to build up some experience before maybe getting longer cruises. I believe, and happy to, work for bed and board to start with but obviously need some money to get me between potential jobs. I am also happy to work anywhere in the world as come July I wont have any commitments tying me to anything.

Any advice/pointers/links/criticism etc will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for reading this,

The RYA web-site would be a good place to start. On their forum they have a section for advertising for work:

My other suggestion would be to scan the classifieds at the back of sailing magazines. If they're anything like the canal magazines I read, they'll have job ads in too.

Good luck!
If you get a dinghy instructor ticket I know some places in Canada that are often looking. it's a little hard to show up mid season though.
The sport fishing might be unadventurous for people who have already enjoyed it, but for youngsters who have not tested the sport before, it is most exciting and exhilarating.What’s more, people are becoming more interested to learn the sport and enjoy the angling. Some folks are also looking fishing as a special weekend hangout activity which enables them to spend their time happily- catching fish and enjoying angling.
