Introduction

"Discovery Sailing Project (DSP) is a Sail Training Charity which is part of the Scout Association. We enable young people from all walks of life to experience and benefit from Offshore Sailing. We operate three yachts from our base at Universal Marina, on the River Hamble:

• Thermopylae Clipper, 60’ 15 berths
• Discovery DSP, 43’ 12 berths
• Alexander Fairey, 34’ 8 berths

DSP are almost exclusively volunteer run, with currently a part time Project Organiser to look after the day to day running of the project. Over the past couple of years we have been very successful in increasing the number of young people who sail with us and hence the number of voyages sailed. We are therefore looking to employ a part time Bosun, to be responsible for ensuring the DSP’s three yachts and two launches are maintained in a good, safe and seaworthy condition.

Ocean Youth Trust Scotland are recruiting for a full time seasonal First Mate for immediate start, working aboard our Challenge 72 and Oyster 70 vessels sailing the stunning West coast of Scotland.

Candidates must hold RYA YM Offshore/Commercially Endorsed, with current ENG 1 or ML5, and have big boat sailing experience.

Delivering adventure(s) under sail, you should be enthusiastic about the benefits of Sail Training for young people and have excellent inter-personal skills.

"Adventures Offshore are a long-established Sail Training charity with two Oyster 49’s based in Ipswich. Our boats are staffed throughout the season by three volunteer sea staff. We sail mainly at weekends during term time, and then both boats have a more adventurous programme of voyages throughout school holidays, including participating in Tall Ships Races.

If you have an RYA Dayskipper or above; with or without a commercial endorsement, we would love to hear from you.

Please give Judy a ring on 07927 911981 to find out more about volunteering with us."

Marine Engineers (Two posts)

Location: TS John Jerwood and TS Jack Petchey based out of Gosport, PO12 2AB.

Salary: c. £29,000 per annum pro rata depending on experience

"MSSC are currently looking to appoint two permanent, full time Marine Engineers to work on board TS John Jerwood and TS Jack Petchey, our 24 metre power youth training vessels based in Gosport. The vessels undertake 6 day voyages for up to 12 Cadets (aged 12 to 18) at a time, around the UK and near continent, from March to November. From December to February, the vessels undergo winter maintenance, including a docking, usually in the Gosport area.

The primary task of the ship’s Marine Engineer is the maintenance and safe operation of all machinery on board the vessels. Responsibility spans the hull, structure, main and auxiliary machinery, electrical and electronic systems, fuel, water, LP air and hydraulics, and the planning and execution of maintenance periods. A comprehensive level of advice and support to the on board Engineers is provided by our two office based Engineering Technical staff.

OYT North’s Career Development Programme is structured over two years to bring together the necessary skills, experience and qualifications for participants to embark on a career in the maritime industry.

Previous graduates have moved into successful careers within Sail Training and a range of other maritime organisations or have used their experience as an alternative means of entry to college or university.

This is a very practical programme run on small commercial vessels – both sail and power - in multiple sailing areas. On and off the job training is provided leading to RYA Qualifications and the development of practical skills in sailing, youthwork and vessel maintenance.
