Yoa Your Own Agency First Ambassador Al

The YOA team is growing!⁠

We are excited to start announcing our awesome team of ambassadors who will be located in major yachting hubs around the world.⁠

First up is Al White who will be representing us in Auckland, New Zealand. ⁠
If you’re looking for crew or work in Auckland make sure you say hi to him if you seen him down at the marinas.⁠
He’s always keen to help out.⁠

Hi, I’m Al!⁠

After growing up spending my childhood sailing small sailing dinghies every weekend in the north of England, a career in the yachting industry was something that was clear to me from an early age. ⁠

Not long after leaving college I completed my Yachtmaster and headed straight out to the med to gain experience as a flotilla skipper. 3 years later I moved on to become an RYA instructor and shortly after became a captain of a luxury charter catamaran based all over the med and Caribbean. ⁠

I have now made the move to Auckland, the ‘city of sails’, where I am beginning my transition onto land. Being surrounded by such a large number of boats makes this a great place for me and I’m snapping up any opportunity to get out on the water in my spare time!⁠

I came across YOA when I was looking for a position myself and really love their approach. It’s great to have a platform that focuses on simplifying the process for both employers and employees equally.⁠

You’ll often find me around the docks of Auckland, I look forward to meeting you and helping you find the right crew for your boat!⁠
