Seafarer Cruising & Sailing Holidays are looking to recruit skippers to lead our Mediterranean flotillas in Greece, Croatia & France. Depending upon location, positions are from April / May to September / October.

As a Seafarer Flotilla Skipper, you will be responsible for running a flotilla of up to a maximum of 12 yachts. Assisted by your lead crew, you will lead initial and daily client briefings, covering all aspects of their holidays, including technical yacht briefings, safety matters, navigation, and cruise itineraries.

Our Flotilla Skippers are our local managers, ensuring all aspects of clients holidays are delivered to the highest standard. This is much more than just a sailing job; we’re looking for people with personality, management skills, and the ability to use their initiative to get things done and resolve local issues.

You will assist clients with berthing and departing port, and ensure their satisfaction and welfare throughout the trip, including leading social events. This is very much a “hands-on” role, and you will organize and co-ordinate yacht turnaround at the beginning and end of each flotilla.

You will manage local expenditure to budget and submit weekly accounts and management reports to Head Office.

We offer a comprehensive package, including return air travel from a London airport to resort, uniform, training, competitive salary, medical insurance, accommodation whilst abroad and a subsistence allowance whilst on flotilla. You can also benefit from friends and family discounts on beach club and flotilla holidays.

Initial interviews will begin November and candidates should be available for interview in London.


You will be qualified to RYA Yachtmaster Offshore level, with Commercial Endorsement, preferably with previous professional skippering experience.  
You must have a sound working knowledge of practical sailing skills and yacht systems (including engines, sails, rigging and general yacht maintenance), with an ability to share this knowledge clearly. The position includes responsibility for ongoing maintenance of all the flotilla yachts whilst away from base.
