Alessandra Peparini, female, 36

Ref 37641

Nationality: Italy
Currently based in: Palma de Mallorca , Spain
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 20000 ocean miles / 10000 coastal miles
I started sailing at the age of 18 and always been working in the nautical field. In 2016 I did the ARC from Las Palmas to Santa Lucia and even if I had a flight back to Europe I never used it and kept sailing all the way to Tahiti, in French Polynesia. There I started working on superyachts as delivery crew and day worker and I am arrived to Singapore. I have many ocean miles under my belt, gained on different size of vessels and my main goal at the moment is to complete the RYA Yachtmaster Ocean doing a passage using the sextant. This summer I have completed a Proficiency in Medical Care course at the Warsash Maritime Academy, and many other courses for seafarers. I am an hardworker, trustworthy, smiling person. Thanks to my previous work experience I am able to undertake ordinary and extraordinary repairs on board. Plus I am a very good cook and have big experience provisioning for long passages and in remote place. Freediving, climbing, hiking, reading, watersports some of my interest...
