I am Emma Cassar, I am 27 years old and for the past 5 years I have been living and working at sea.
I was born and raised on the gorgeous little island of Malta. The belly button of the Mediterranean, and have subsequently been around the water my entire life.
Little did I know a 6 month holiday in 2012 would turn into a 5 year adventure and reveal a new found love affair with the salt life.
I chose to write this blog to share my story.
Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined myself working within the yachting world. The industry found me, or rather I had to travel 16,000km to find it. Either way, it wasn’t an easy decision, I was well out of my comfort zone for the longest time, but I have never looked back. And 5 years later I am confident enough to write about the life I chose. To inspire others to never second guess themselves or what they are capable of.
The tiny cabin, salt skin, jet lag, late night, early morning, stubbed toe, split end, sunset loving life I have made for myself.
This is my story
