Jubilee Sailing Trust - Chief Mate

The Jubilee Sailing Trust own & operate the 55m STS LORD NELSON & the 65m SV TENACIOUS, two purpose built barques used for the integration of able-bodied & physically disabled people.

They require an experienced Chief Mate with a minimum UK issued Chief Mate (Yacht) Certificate of Competency (or UK issued Certificate of Equivalent Competency). Responsible to the Master for the safe day to day running of the vessel, he/she is also the Ship's Safety & Security Officer, so experience working within ISM & ISPS legislation is essential.

2:1 work/leave ratio is standard with approx 6-8 weeks on / 3-4 weeks off tours of duty. Reduced work/leave ratios (e.g. 1:1) also possible.

The JST offers a very different type of Sail Training to others, so if you fancy the challenge of getting wheelchair users up the mast of a square rigged tall ship, then do get in touch.

Ocean Youth Trust South - Core Refit Team x 4

Ocean Youth Trust South is looking for four people to join their Core Refit Team of volunteers from November 2015 to March 2016.

Volunteers will be involved in a complete refit of the sail training vessel John Laing, and will receive food, accommodation and valuable experience in boat maintenance and repairs. Ideally volunteers must be aged 18+, there is no upper age limit. Practical skills in any aspect of boat maintenance will be an advantage but not essential. Core team volunteers should be hard-working, responsible and enthusiastic. The team all live together in a rented refit house (unless they have their own accommodation in the Southampton area) and it is vital that volunteers are also prepared to take responsibility for a share of cooking and cleaning in the house. These vacancies are ideal for anyone considering a career in the marine industry (though this is not essential). Refit volunteers often go on to become bosuns or watch leaders during the sailing season. Previous volunteers have also moved on to paid work in the sailing industry at first mate or skipper level, where an understanding of maintenance issues is imperative.

For more information and an application form visit http://www.oytsouth.org/sea-staff/refit-volunteers.asp or contact Andy Viney on 07990 518915 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (but please do look at the website first).
