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!
