Flotilla 1st Mate is the ideal position for anyone who loves the sea and sailing and wants to improve their skills in the stunning destinations we sail. 

Your main role is that of social organiser. This will include briefing clients daily on the facilities available at each port, and organising group meals and excursions to local points of interest. Once a week you will prepare a simple Punch Party, and once a fortnight you will organise and prepare a meal for the guests at the Beach Party, albeit with the help of your skipper. You will be on hand to assist with the mooring of flotilla yachts each day and be friendly and sociable as well as an information source for your guests.

On turnaround days you will work with the rest of the flotilla crew to check and prepare yachts. The latter will include providing grocery welcome packs for each boat, and ensuring the lead boat is provisioned. You will also liaise with our local agents to ensure transfers of clients between the airport and our base run smoothly. Throughout, you will be required to account for all funds you spend.


You need to be an energetic, diplomatic and responsible individual, with a sense of fun and good organisational skills. You must be able to manage your own work and be confident in front of clients. Sailing qualifications are useful though not essential but you should have experience in line with RYA Competent Crew or above. For 1st Mates who do a full season, we will provide RYA Day Skipper with Seafarer Training.

You must be certain you can live in the confines of a yacht and will ideally have previously spent at least a week living onboard.   Most positions are for the duration of the season
