Getting charter driving work.

Following on from my previous thread, I have my comercial exam soon.

I am just wondering how easy / hard it is to find work to apply for in the charter industry, preferably around the Solent. But I am also really keen to get some work for the olympics being a very keen and competitive sailor it would be great to be down there.

So if anyone has any info about how much work is generally available and how best to go about getting some?


Cheers

Hi sorry to hijack the thread what is the minimum age to get charter work? Is the advanced commercial exam a requirement for insurance etc?
