Well it took us six months but we finally have a job together on a Super Yacht. To give you all an idea of how zany Yachting can be please enjoy the following timeline.
Sunday: Anna is homeless and jobless. Karina and Darren take pity on us and put us up for a few nights.
Tuesday Karina tells Anna of a new boat that needs crew and advises Anna to call on Wednesday.
Wednesday: Anna calls and is told to come in for lunch with the crew.
Mad rush to print off Anna’s CV. I take a chance and print off a copy of mine.
I do an expert iron of Anna’s polo shirt.
I am two glasses down an excellent red and I get a phone call to also come and have lunch with crew.
Meet Captain and his Wife. We are told they do not like to employ couples but……
Captain begrudgingly tells me the boat is a computer with two rudders and two engines.
I rub my hands together.
We get a tour of Yacht on Wednesday night. More about that later.
Thursday: We have new jobs. Anna starts today. I start as soon as I can get out of my contract.
So what about the boat? Well it is brand new. 62 metres in length. It has an on board gym and lap pool. It has really good crew areas which is good as the Captain likes to cruise and not sit about in port. It is full of technology and I can stand up in the engine room which is a novelty.
We will be leaving Viareggio on the 20th of November for the Maldives and Egypt. We will then go to the Dubai yacht show.
Life is good.
