#croatiasailing – Malahide reader Scott Flanigan, the 2012 Olympic sailing team member, has written to advise of an opportunity for young sailors who would like to work as a skipper in Croatia this summer.
The 'Yacht Week' is a sailing event in Croatia, Greece and Italy that brings young people from all over the world to sail together in flotillas of 50 boats. The guests are 20-30 years old and every week is a mix of sailing, concerts, dinners and parties.
'It was something I took part in over the New Year Break in the Caribbean' and I think it is a great opportunity for Irish sailors' Flanigan told Afloat.ie
The 'Yacht Week' is currently recruiting skippers for the summer to work professionally on 40-55ft sail yachts. All expenses during the week are paid for as well as a minimum salary of €350/week (plus tips!) says Flanigan. They offer up to 12 weeks of work during the season.
Requirements are to hold a basic navigational certificate (Level 4 or Day skipper are sufficient) and a VHF license. You also need to be an experienced sailor. Keelboat experience is not necessary since you will learn all you need to become a skipper during a weeks skipper course in Croatia.
