Last year after Christmas, I traveled to the British Virgin Islands to work as a first mate and chef on a private catamaran charter. I can hardly believe it has already been almost a year! How time flies!
This adventure was an experiment to find out if I’d enjoy this type of work as a means of affordably experiencing sailing in different parts of the world. The Caribbean’s glowing sapphire waters, cool breezes, and warm sunshine enchanted me to fall even more deeply in love with sailing, in spite of being challenged by exhaustion and injuries.
As this trip was a working gig, I have obscured the clients’ and captain’s identities to respect their privacy. There is so much more about this adventure that I wish I could share, but it’s more important to do the right thing by the clients. Nonetheless, I very much enjoyed making this video and I hope that you will enjoy watching it.
