Polar expedition skipper looking for freelance work
Firstly a big hello - I have spent some time reading through this forum and there are some good blokes on here and some good discussion - I cant quite believe I hadn't found it sooner to be honest. I hope to become a more active member, so please do ask any questions you might have, or just get in touch and say hello.
I will make this brief as possible -
I am a 28 year old male, just returned from the Arctic working a redbay stormforce for 3 months, prior to that I spent 2.5 years in South Georgia in the sub antarctic as senior boating officer for the British Antarctic Survey running 5.5 humbers, and 12m Mustang Marine rib workers, before that I was a SAR Mission Coordinator and Deputy Watch Manager for HMCG (Humber and Solent MRCCs) and volunteer lifeboatman. I am currently working towards STCW95 Master 500 ton unlimited, already have YM Offshore, Powerboat Instructor and numerous other bits of paper. Some of you might recognise my name from my articles in Powerboat and RIB mag about antarctica and rescue planning.
I am looking for freelance work starting immediately to fit around my studies. I will consider anything up to 200 ton - deliveries, instructing, charter, workboats - anything. I am based in the Solent area for now, but can travel.
Sorting a mobile phone today so can provide a number to interested parties.
