Sail with Us
Do you want to experience what it’s like to be a Sailor for Sustainability? Are you passionate about the earth, our society and the future? Then apply to sail with us for one or two weeks. You’ll be a full crew member (no sailing experience required), assist with research, planning, visits, articles, videos, social media, and fundraising. You may also develop and execute your own ideas that help us achieve our goals.
Applications are open for anyone aged 18 – 80, the timing is to be agreed. Your contribution to the costs are determined depending on experience, length of stay, and sailing area. Contact Us for additional information or an application.
