Dear Sir. Being a passionate sailor living in Mallorca I started to work in this sector five years ago. I have been working as a sailing instructor as well as a self-employed skipper in Mallorca during this summer season. That is why I am used to helping out with all kinds of tasks. Last winter, I participated in several regattas together with a professional team. I believe that my positivity and my good team spirit have not only been very useful and helpful skills for these regattas but also will be important for your sailing yacht delivery. Moreover, after having done different allround jobs, it has been this year that I have started to specialize myself in boat deliveries. Please find here an overview of my last deliveries in 2019: - Transport of a new Catamaran Bali 4.1 from Toulon, France to St Vincent, Caribbean. ARC 2019. 4500 miles approx - Transport of a new Catamaran Nautitech 41” from La Rochelle, France to Mallorca, Spain. 1500 miles approx. - Transport of a new Sailing Yacht Bavaria 50” from Alicante, Spain to Mallorca, Spain. 213 miles. - Transport of a new Catamaran Lagoon 46” from Sete, France to Ibiza, Spain. 415 miles Do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or need further clarification on my experience. I would love to meet you and discuss this position in detail. Thank you for considering my application.
