Schedule
for Damon Ramsey

I try to keep this as updated as possible. For just completed trips and work history go to work history of Damon Ramsey

PLEASE NOTE DUE TO THE VIRUS, THIS SCHEDULE IS CHANGING DAILY AS I ATTEMPT TO DEAL WITH CONSTANT CANCELLATIONS AND SWAP INTO MORE APPROPRIATE OR LIKELY TRIPS; AND SO I APOLOGISE THAT IT HAS TURNED INTO A CONFUSING MESS! Please note; that for the next few seasons, I will have to concentrate on companies offering Asia/Australia contracts to minimize cancellations.

Examples: 
Work; including my role, dates, locations, ship, company
Private expeditions, time off
Courses & training
