The Career

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 skipper’s job and abilities, the remaining it's about dealing with "people" and understanding and managing it onboard.


A good skipper is always friendly with his customers but has to maintain a certain distance from his guests onboard because it is not about the private trip but his job.
