Sarah Tang

Deckhand and Stew-masseuse in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Sarah Tang, born in Hong Kong but raised and braised in Canada, is currently seeking a long term professional career as a stew-masseuse or deckhand on expedition yachts.

Years of traveling by herself, Sarah has been exposed to different cultures in over 50 countries. She is a quick learner, hard-working, optimistic, fun to speak with, friendly and independent. She speaks English as her mother tongue, but is also fluent in Cantonese and Mandarin; and now she can also manage conversational Spanish. It's not her linguistic talents, it's her determination to learn.

In addition to yachting, Sarah offers a background full of life stories and skills. From traveling around the globe, she's worked on some unusual jobs that includes but not limited to hosting shows on cruise ships as an entertainer, being the ambassador for various marketing brands, tree planting in remote areas, teaching English in Morocco, and digging holes in South America. She is willing to learn, can think on her feet under time pressure in countries that do not normally speak much English. Such skills and life experience makes her quite the unique character and well-rounded crew you would want to have around.

She believes her creativity, people skills, her humor, adopted skills from the globe, and her extraordinary memory will make her an excellent deck-stew. Sarah is a natural optimistic entertainer and thrives working long hours under pressure. Her hobbies range from artistic fruit carving to exploring abandoned buildings.
