Are you an experienced sailing 1st Mate keen for a world tour?

Are you interested in being in Spain for the America’s Cup?

Position Snapshot

A little about the itinerary:


The boat is currently in a mini refit in Australia and should depart for New Zealand on the first of December, we’ll have an owner trip and then pick up a two week charter just before Christmas. Once we drop them off, we will prepare and head across the pacific towards South America. Where we will cruise there for a few weeks, before rounding the Cape and heading north towards Rio, and then across the Atlantic, back to the Med for the summer, where we will charter, and be a part of the America’s Cup, after which the boat will head to the yard in Palma for the winter to replace decks and have a paint job.

The owners are American, very nice, but like to be quite involved. The schedule is also quite hectic, as we will be on the go pretty much solidly for the next year. So with all the miles we will be doing, I’d really like to get people with a bit of experience under their belts. We won’t be on the dock or in any major hubs for the most part. So looking for crew who quite calm and keen for an adventure.


For the Mate:


We are looking for someone with big boat sailing experience. And a real sailor. They should have at least two or three seasons under their belt. And a solid sailing background. The boat is going to do some miles over the next year, so someone unattached would be better, however I am open to a possible couple’s position with the chef, if they both fit the bill. They should have all the usual tickets, yacht master (Preferably ocean) STCW, ENG1, GMDSS a big plus. Local candidates in Aus would be great, but we are willing to fly the right people in. At the moment it is a standard SEA contract under UK flag, which amounts to just over 40 days of paid leave, flights. There is a bonus scheme and the owners are lovely and often treat the crew to various ‘experiences’ along the way.

Start: Mid/ Late October or before

Salary: From $6000 US / Month , 40 days leave, SEA contract
