VISION Crew Profile
Pablo “Paul” Gibson
I’m 33 years old , was born in Argentina, and have been sailing since I was a kid, passing through most of the dinghy classes including Optimist, Cadet, Laser, Snipe, Soling, etc.
I own a 30ft sloop and have sailed it back and forth over the last decade as much as time allows. My sailing experience in racing, cruising and chartering is quite a lot and added to this I gathered valuable knowledge regarding charter operations whilst working in Angra dos Reis, Brazil where I managed a charter company with a 8/11 yacht fleet all Beneteau & Lagoon. Receiving clients, briefing them on the navigation area, dangers, anchorages, etc., briefing of the boats and their different equipments, maintenance, general admin, and skippering the yachts were some of my responsibilities. I also entered several team building courses in which I deeply enjoyed passing on my knowledge on navigation, sail trimming, race crews organization, etc.
I would like to outline that I assisted the technical course given at the St. Gilles, France Beneteau shipyard (2005) regarding all maintenance aspects of these yachts.
I also hold a commercial aircraft pilot license multi engine and instruments rating issued by the Argentinean AirForce.
This, together with my sailing experience, guarantees great expertise on navigation, weather forecasting, safety, engines, crew resource management, first aid, customer service, etc.
