Tom Novacki


23 year-old from the Peak District,UK. A hard working professional with a wicked sense of humour. Formally a freelance sailing instructor, now an experienced Bosun on a range of boats and soon to be a CM3000. Initially selected as a Trinity House Deck Cadet I’ve climbed the industry ladder making some incredible life-long friends and trying to teach and coach junior crew as I go.
As crew we’re extremely lucky to play a part in this awesome industry, and I’m extremely thankful for the opportunities I’ve been given which has reaped many rewards; degree paid off, courses funded and now a property owner – true testament that if you learn your place, learn your trade, and willing to learn from others, then the returns at sea are immesnse.

Big thanks to Chief Stew Award winner Josipa Lozo for nominating me 😉
