Maybe Sailing relies heavily on volunteers to help on board Tall Ship Maybe and Tall Ship Blue Clipper throughout the sailing season and during winter re-fit. Volunteer placements are for a minimum of 2 months or for longer periods of time.  If you are interested in volunteering with Maybe Sailing please contact for an application form and for a list of volunteer opportunities throughout 2018 and 2019.

Volunteering offers an excellent opportunity to gain experience and knowledge on board our vessels.
