Volunteering with Maybe Sailing

Winter 2023



Maybe Sailing relies heavily on volunteers to help onboard Tall Ship Maybe and Tall Ship Blue Clipper throughout the sailing season and during winter refit. Volunteer placements are for a minimum of 2 weeks or for longer periods of time. Volunteering offers an excellent opportunity to gain experience and knowledge onboard our vessels.

To volunteer on board Blue Clipper, you must possess a minimum of STCW 95 basic training and have previous Tall Ship sailing experience. For deck positions, priority will be given to those who possess a Yacht Rating Certificate or equivalent.

To volunteer on TS Maybe, you must possess a minimum of RYA Day Skipper. Priority will be given to those who have completed a voyage as a trainee crew member on board TS Maybe.

If you have a lesser qualification, we may be able to accept you, however, you must be known to us or have spent time with us during refit. Volunteers are provided with accommodation and board during the volunteer placement.

Please fill out the following form if you are interested in volunteering.
