"The experience was amazing, I loved it so much and got to know the characters of people I work with. I learned how to crew a boat and I loved it so much that I want to go again" - Gemma from Essex
Proceeds from this great new book go towards bursary funding to enable more people to take part in Sail Training.
There are many ways to be involved in Sail Training. Often the first experience is taking part in a typical voyage as a trainee. For others it is looking for a new sailing challenge or adventure.
The UK fleet operate with a mix of paid and volunteers staff. The exact make up of the staff on each vessel varies from organisation, but all require professionally qualified staff (whether they are paid or not) and other supporting roles such as Cooks, Youth Mentors or Engineers.
Non-sailing staff are just as important. Many organisations have volunteer support groups or look for people to help in specific projects such as attending boat shows or refit work.
This section should help you to indenify how best you should be involved.
