Challenge Wales operates two sail training vessels and relies heavily on its amazing volunteers to help crew the boat and change young people’s lives through sail training adventures. We’re recruiting sailing crew volunteers who can help deliver our programme within Wales, the UK and overseas.

Volunteers are required for the immediate season, this includes day and residential voyages that often operate during the week as well as weekends. Our sailing programme operates almost year-round. In particular we are looking for volunteers who are available weekdays and can crew for residential voyages (minimum 3 nights).

Further details can be found at:

Minimum of RYA Day Skipper is required, with or without commercial endorsement. There is the opportunity for progression from Watchleader to Mate and through to Skipper for those looking for the opportunity and keen to develop themselves.
