Support Team Volunteer (SP)

← Back to search results

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. 

The Sailability season runs every THURSDAY from April to October (am and pm).  We welcome anyone who wishes to help out on our rota for all or part of a day.
