Bart Stegewerns, male, 27

Ref 49701

Nationality: Netherlands
Currently based in: , Netherlands
Looking for: Caribbean; West Africa & South Atlantic Islands; Western Europe & North Atlantic Islands;
Experience: 4650 ocean miles / 5000 coastal miles
Looking for boats island hopping northwards from St Lucia. ICC, STCW, Radio Operator, First Aid, Offshore Survival and Firefighting certifications. Compensated positions or free of cost positions preferred. Dear sailors, I am a competent professional sailor willing to fulfill roles such as 1st mate, watch-leader and/or bowman and/or engineer. I have a wide scale of experience from dinghy sailing up to a 122ft classic schooner. I have a masters degree in engineering and have experience with machines and mechanisms found on typical sailing ships. In 2022 I worked on a 72ft sailing ketch which operates in the North Sea providing offshore research and monitoring service. During my free weeks I raced dual handed for a second season on a 33ft racer handling the foredeck and kites. I also skippered a charter in Greece and Croatia and two in the Netherlands. Basically only sailing all the time. STCW basic safety, medical first aid and care, general radio license in the pocket. I will be in the Caribbean from February until I find a suiting boat crossing to Europe with nice company who would like to have me on board and help out. With my various experiences, it is a lot of work to put all my sailing history on my profile. If we get in touch I can send you my resume which has all my info and certificates listed.
