A different kind of maritime ex- perience: PJ Jacquelin and team- mates racing on a Farr 40 in the 2011 North American Champion- ships in Long Beach, CA.
Before You Go
For those interested in a career on the marine insurance side of the ledger,
Jacquelin advises candidates to ? rst get some real life experience in the industry and only then look for an opportunity with a major carrier. Being able to ac- curately translate the nuances between vessel operators and carriers will, he says, ? ll a need in the industry that is currently experiencing a void. He adds simply, “When I tell a tug company owner that I can operate one of their boats, they know that they’re with a bro- ker that understands them and knows how to lookout for their best interest.”
Yacht racer, marine surveyor, Coast
Guard veteran, college professor and professional mariner: it’s not your typi- cal career path and perhaps, not too many will ever get to duplicate that set of credentials. Nevertheless, and at its most basic level, it is experience that counts. PJ Jacquelin has that, and a whole lot more. *All images courtesy PJ Jacquelin www.maritimeprofessional.com Maritime Professional 23| |
