Self described as outgoing, enthusiastic and self-motivated - these attributes are pretty evident. Harrison has achieved plenty since graduating from Rockley College and has a clear career goal, which we are super excited about!
I chose Rockley College so that I could pursue the outdoor lifestyle which I love so much! I saw that it was mainly a practical course which I knew would suit me down to the ground.
WHAT ARE YOU UP TO RIGHT NOW?
I’m currently doing a Superyacht Cadetship at UKSA which I have been doing since graduating from Rockley College. I have just achieved my Yachtmaster Offshore qualification which is so cool – I’m over the moon about this!!!
Best thing that’s happened to you since leaving Rockley College?
I am coming to the end of my cadetship which has been an intense six months of training on land and sailing around the south coast. I am now looking for employment as a deckhand so hopefully I’ll be flying to somewhere warm in the med in the next few months.
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS?
I will hopefully have gained my Officer of the Watch 3000gt qualification which will enable me to be an officer on any superyacht. This will be a huge achievement for me.
I chose to embark on a yachting career as I know so many people following this path who are having the best time - travelling around the world and meeting some wicked people.
Your thoughts on Rockley College?
I would 100% recommend Rockley College. I have made some sick friends, the course itself was so much fun - especially all of the practical aspects and I also achieved so many qualifications including my RYA Dinghy Instructor and RYA Windsurf Instructor.
