Jobs for sailing

Hi all

Long time reader, first post.

Of the people here who cruise or take a lot of multiple day trips what kind of jobs do you have? Are they jobs with flexible hours, or do you somehow just make it work? Any fields that are too demanding to get away from and go sail for a week? Jobs that are best for sailing?

I don't cruise (yet), but my wife and I try to take as many multiple week trips as possible during the summer. The problem is that we both have businesses. She sells work at art show that she travels to, I am a commercial photographer. Trying to get our schedules to align has all of a sudden been a challenge. Her schedule is set- roughly 2 weekends a month she has shows schedule other than that she can go sailing anytime she wants. Mine changes day to day. I try to schedule my shoots so that I leave open weeks to go sailing, I just don't seem to be having much luck lately.

A lot of the cruisers are retired, though not all. If you feel like you want to cruise, but the kitty just won't stretch, there are some fields that you can go into that could help you supplement your income. Diesel mechanic, or course. Metal fabrication, AC/refrigeration, canvas and sail work, rigging are a few of the sailing related things you can do. Other things such as bartending/server, haircutting, service type jobs in other words can also help.

A lot of it depends on what kind of lifestyle you want to live, and how much you want to be cruising. As they say, where there's a wil, there's a way.

College faculty can spend summers cruising, and take sabbatical leaves every 7 years...
