Who is sailing the Words? Creating Sailing the Words was inspired both by sailing and travelling. But before reaching this little corner of paradise, I met some headwinds and I had to weave my way through gusts of wind. So, are you ready to sail the words with me ?
I am Cyrille Mousset and I come from the South of France. My first experience with the English language at school was enthralling and was the start of everything. My course is mapped out and I had made up my mind : I wanted to speak English fluently.
After passing a degree in hospitality and tourism, I decided to travel with the aim of discovering new places : first Spain and the French West Indies, then the USA, India, Lebanon and Italy. Boosted by several meetings and new experiences, I chose Paris for working in the tourism industry. I worked for independent hotels as they give you the opportunity to become multi skilled, and I wanted to make full use of my interpersonal and business skills in a mainly English speaking environment. I had been working as an executive manager for 16 years when this brilliant experience came to an end.
SO, THE WIND ROSE AND I SET SAILS…
I decided to take advantage of this change for building a new professional project that perfectly fitted with my personal values, desires and passions. I wanted to live and work on the sea, and watch it every single day. So, I started looking for a floating home which would allow me to make my dreams come true. I chose a Gladiateur, a 33 foot sailboat from 1978, built by Wauquiez. The sailboat is my partner in helping me making my dream come true. Fully equipped with the business material I need, I can offer online translation services. And of course, maritime area is now one of my favorite skills.
Sailing the words is the meeting point of all these experiences and I wanted my company name to reflect all the different streams in a day-to-day life.
So, as sailors say…Fair winds !
