Best Odyssey has a job opening

Postby kiteodysseys » Tue Jan 29, 2008 4:33 am

Hey All,

As many of you know, The Best Odyssey is a world kitesurfing expedition. All the details can be seen on our website: http://www.offshoreodysseys.com. The yacht is a 2002 Lagoon 570 catamaran. We have 3 full time crew- Captain, Stew/Mate and chef. We very often have professional kiteboarders onboard and often work with the media. The boat operates as a time share for a group of owners who are all pretty serious athletes. We have been underway for the past year, beginning in Italy and operating across the Caribbean. We have just transited the Panama Canal and will be sailing the South Pacific, Micronesia, the Far East, Indian Ocean and beyond for the next 4+ years.

The position entails interior and exterior cleaning and service prep for our chef when needed. Typically this entails one full day before and after each trip, and about an hour each day maintaining order. We do not operate like a super yacht- no uniforms, no kissing ass. But we run a tight ship and take work and play seriously. We kite, surf, dive, spearfish and explore the most remote places on the planet in style. Our chef is Michelin accredited and world class. Our owners are part of our family and we're all one big team. The website spells it all out.

Health insurance/benefits after 3 months, one RT flight home after one year, one month paid time off after one year. Salary depends on experience and ability.

Bonus for any of the following:
Dive master
Master's license, offshore time
non-smoker
kiteboarding instructor
Female (only because we find guys are less than enthusiastic about making beds)
passionate about the environment

If interested, please send picture (compressed), references, CV if available, and brief intro through our contact page.

Applications will not be considered if it is not obvious you have spent some time on our website seeing what it's all about. It's a unique expedition, applicants should also be unique. We are very often offshore, so replying to this post won't likely get an answer from me as I rarely get a chance to be online.

Thanks and kind regards,

Gavin McClurg
Captain

Just wanted to say the job opening is still there. We're now interviewing and hope to have the position filled by the middle of March.

Thanks,

Gavin
