The role of a host

As a host your main duty is to take care your guests onboard for the week to deliver a once in a lifetime experience from the moment they arrive to their departure. This includes serving and cooking daily meals, keeping the galley in order, providing direction, communicating and working alongside the skipper. 

You'll make sure the vibes are always high and your guests are informed about their trip. Be it knowing the best bay for swimming or having drinks ready at sunset. See yourself as their new bestfriend that will give them the best holiday they've ever had. Nobody wants a stranger amidst their holiday so you will need to learn to make your guests feel comfortable and relaxed.
