Excellent experience. I suggest you continue to work the charter trade in the Caribbean or other popular winter destination to gain additional geographic expertise and to expand your contacts in yachting. Working relationships with people in the marine industry who will act as career mentors are critical . Your mission is to rapidly develope a quality contact phone book so that in future you may move from assignment to assignment effortlessly. Remember to always keep your sea time and licensing protocol forward looking. A commercial grade ticket such as MCA is your goal. Consult one of the sea schools for advice . Additional language skills such as German make you very valauble
