Being a Gazelle of the Sea, is about knowing and accepting to Pull and Push Ahead Together !
It is about knowing how to live together in a confined space, following an atypical way of life - and one
that is on water. Every crewmember has their place and learns to do what needs to be done, but together,
the crew works as a team, discussing and communicating with everyone on board; in the spirit of real
camaraderie, but following the orders of the captain, every decision counts when it comes to reaching
the common goal.
As an essential part of any seafaring mission, the Gazelles of the sea are "sailors" who thrive in the
sea spray, always ready to intervene and hone their skills in successfully completing their mission no
matter what the circumstances.
Dynamic, versatile and meticulous, the Gazelles of the sea need to know how to adapt to any conditions at
any time be they related to the weather, equipment or anyone else on board. Indeed, working together at
sea is no mean feat and requires faultless teamwork and a great sense of responsibility. When at sea,
there is no quick fix. The sea brings out all of the sides of people's nature and soon puts an end to
overindulgence. You need to know how to listen, comply with rules, be nimble and react in an appropriate
way at any time of the day or night.
The Gazelles of the sea need to be tough and physically prepared, since being in shape is important for
getting everything that is required to be done at all times. Endurance, stress management and working
under pressure are key assets insofar as they have an immediate effect on one's ability to react and
intervene in the face of an unexpected problem. In addition, knowing how to stay calm and be aware are
crucial when working on board a ship.
The Gazelles of the sea need to be tenacious and demanding, be driven to resolve problems together, and
show willingness and determination when it comes to pushing one's limits and achieving goals.
Good knowledge of English would be an added plus in the context of an international race.
