Underway Sailing, via NauticEd, provides a FREE online sailing resume building tool for our students.
At the push of a button, in real-time, your sailing resume is created and ready to be sent to any yacht charter company in the world.
A sailing resume is the most important document you'll need to charter boats internationally. Your sailing resume details your experience, courses, training, and accomplishments. Yacht charter companies require your sailing resume to decide if you are a worthy client. Without a resume, a yacht charter company will simply deny your request. As you get accredited for training, sail more, and take more courses your resume grows.
