OYT South's vessel John Laing undergoes a substantial refit every year between November and March. Volunteers are needed to join the team for a minimum of a month during this time - ideally for the full four and a half months.
This is an ideal opportunity for someone planning a gap year or career break, or looking to move into the Sail Training industry: most previous OYT South core team refit volunteers have gone on to paid sailing work.
Volunteers receive food and accommodation, as well as experience in boat repairs and maintenance.
A hard-working, responsible and enthusiastic approach is essential; practical skills in any aspect of boat maintenance is an advantage.
