PO Box 13 678,
Cadet on the Spirit of New Zealand.
Essentially an apprentice of the sea. Gaining sea hours, experience and knowledge in order to gain a skipper's ticket to work at sea.
Retail and acting.
Working with awesome people, learning, helping develop the youth of New Zealand, all while getting to be on the sea.
I have to be away from my dog for 20 days at a time.
Completing my first 21 things as a Cadet before my first 3 month review and starting to get my modules signed off.
Getting stuck in to clean the chain bin while getting absolutely covered in mud.
Pretty much anything you do as a Cadet. The number one way cadets learn is by doing things wrong and then figuring out a better way of doing it. Some of these are more embarrassingly silly than others.
Music, art, literature, ukuleles, wine and dogs.
