The Career Options
Passion and love for the Sea, Sailing and Seamanship
To become a good skipper it takes a great deal of self-confidence and passion.
A good Skipper doesn't have to know all about navigation, maritime traffic rules, safety regulations, first aid and medical care, marine engineering and electronics and meteorology – he has to be a master of it all… and this is only the beginning. Sailing it's only roughly 10% of the skipper’s job and abilities.
A good skipper is always friendly with his crew/guests but has to maintain a certain distance so that he knows when it's time to make the right decisions for both the yacht and crew safety
