Green Yacht Crew Solutions

I am absolutely honoured. Thank you.

I help green yacht crew that have no clue where to start, which courses to take, the actual meaning of these courses and what you are eligible to do after acquiring them, find jobs on yachts. 

I also help experienced crew that want to leave their current positions onboard but are too afraid to resign because of the uncertainty of finding another suitable position. It’s no secret that yacht crew get cabin fever and desire a new and challenging adventure. I have developed a program that allows JUST that! 
14-day approach plan allows you to be anywhere in the world at any time and seen by the correct people that are more likely to make contact with you and present an opportunity.

A little bit about me… I have over 10 years experience onboard Luxury Super Yachts. I have worked my way up from Junior Deckhand through to Becoming a Captain. My career peaked when I became Chief Officer. I worked in this position for 2 years and learned an incredible amount of fundamental skills required to be a leader on board, but also in life! I then came home to South Africa because my mother needed my assistance. But, The truth is, I kept telling myself that because I didn’t want to admit that I was completely over the lifestyle that one has after living on board a yacht for 10 years. Amongst battling the uncertainty of my future my older brother, Jethy de Wet, gave me the idea to help others do what I do! At first, I didn’t think much of it you know, IMPOSTER SYNDROME hit me hard and I thought to myself no one would want to work with me because there are so many schools in the world that already do this.  I then got offered a position to run a boat here in Cape Town. How wouldn’t want to run a yacht in the V$A waterfront? After about two weeks it was made painfully clear that I was over it. 

I submitted to the fact and thought long and hard about my next move but again I referred to the easy way out which was flying to the states and hopping on a boat there, but I said no! For once in my life, I am going to set a goal and finish it! 

Since then I have been looking at yachting from a completely different angle! I realised that there is no school in the world that ACTUALLY teaches crew how to find A. JOB! THEY ALL JUST PROVIDE THE PLATFORM TO MAKE YOU LEGALLY ACCREDITED TO THEN GO AND FIND ONE. YES, THEY GIVE YOU ADVICE AND FEW POINTERS HERE AND THERE BUT THAT’S NOT NEARLY ENOUGH! ESPECIALLY IN TODAYS WORLD WHERE YOUR AVERAGE NEW CREW REGISTRATIONS IS 22% ANNUALLY. 

I WAS NEVER MORE MOTIVATED IN MY LIFE TO CREATE THE PERFECT METHOD 

Below is a general description of my process.

Step 1 – Wheel of life:

The Wheel of Life® is often used and used as a means of coaching and / or setting goals. In the Wheel of Life®, it is intended to identify how an individual spends his time and how satisfied this person is about the different parts and areas that life has to offer. This creates a type of self-reflection, that allows you to get (even) more out of life.

Step 2 – GROW

G Goal The Goal is the endpoint, where the client wants to be. The goal has to be defined in such a way that it is very clear to the client when they have achieved it.
R The Current Reality is where the client is now. What are the issues, the challenges, how far are they away from their goal?

O Obstacles There will be Obstacles stopping the client getting from where they are now to where they want to go. If there were no Obstacles the client would already have reached their goal. Once Obstacles have been identified, the client needs to find ways of dealing with them if they are to make progress. These are the Options.
W Way Forward The Options then need to be converted into action steps which will take the client to their goal. These are the Way Forward.
