Description

Want to get out sailing and help inspire young people? Come and join Morvargh Sailing Project and Volunteer!

Our mission? To use sail training to inspire and change lives. Since our incorporation as a social enterprise we have taken many young people sailing on our Tall Ship, Helen Mary R. We use the medium of offshore sailing because it is an unforgiving natural environment that provides a sense of risk and adventure to the participants; whilst allowing us to develop them over a range of disciplines.

Our Tall Ship, Helen Mary R is a natural extension to this philosophy, she requires hard physical work and cannot be sailed without teamwork, communication & resilience, both on deck and down below. Most people come to us with little or no sailing experience but nearly all find it a life changing experience!

We are a sail training organisation based in Plymouth.

There is something about Sail Training and working with young people that inspires us massively. Seeing the positive change in a young person after just a few short days; helping them push their boundaries and discover their true potential is very humbling.

Becoming a volunteer is not just about getting the opportunity to go sailing but in helping make a positive change in a young persons life. There are many ways you could get involved with Morvargh from joining the team sailing Helen Mary R (Afterguard), to helping with refits, or even fundraising. Whatever your contribution may be, it is extremely valuable to us, we couldn’t do the work we do without your help.

If you want to volunteer as a member of the sailing staff (called Afterguard) you will need either RYA qualifications or provable experience. As a minimum you will need to have or be at the standard of RYA Day Skipper Sail, theory & practical.

Thanks! Team Morvargh :)
