Support Team Volunteer (SP)
Volunteers are the lifeblood of Queen Mary Sailability. We enable disabled adults and children to experience the relaxation of cruising and the excitement of racing in a safe sailing environment.
Being a volunteer with Queen Mary Sailability is a fun and fulfilling experience. Sailing experience is not a necessity as we have all manner of volunteer roles both on the water and on shore. We give a full induction into the support team followed by ongoing training and support.
