The Windeward Bound Trust – Windeward Bound
Voluntary Crew – General Purpose Hand
Voluntary crew live aboard the ship full-time, commit to a minimum of six months (longer if on a scholarship), participate in the rostered duty watch schedule, and positively represent Windeward Bound at all times. Additionally, voluntary crew must be average weight for height, reasonably fit, able to work at heights and lift own weight, and be a non-smoker and drug-free*.
Windeward Bound voluntary crew receive free room and board and get an average of two days off per week. Australian citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply for scholarships from the Windeward Bound Scholarship Fund for professional maritime qualifications, including Master <24m and MED 3 Certificates. Eligibility for scholarships depends upon performance and length of commitment.
Please check back for crew and volunteer positions, or contact your local Tall Ship Operator.
