You must have a Blue Card before you commence volunteering with us. We can help you with that.

 

If you love sailing and no longer have access to a boat,  come and sail one of our dinghies, yacht or support boat. 

 

If you want to learn to sail to take client sailors for a sail, we have qualified volunteers who will help you gain this skill.

All skills are of value as there is always maintenance to be done.
