There are many openings in the commercial sailing industry at several levels. Jobs abound from Deck Hand through to Captain. Ability and experience are of paramount importance when applying for positions, however, there are also some prerequisite commercial endorsements, and further qualifications required, if your application is to be successful.

RYA Certificates may be commercially endorsed from Day Skipper Practical onwards, although work is unlikely to be offered to anyone holding less than RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore or Yachtmaster Ocean qualifications.

For the Super Yacht industry, an STCW qualification must compliment your RYA/MCA qualifications , and is essential. You will need to arrange your own Medical Report to achieve your Commercial Endorsement, but at Miramar Sailing School we can arrange for all other qualifications to be achieved, and offer advice and assistance on where you go with them!
