Watch: Trinity Sailing
Captain - Temporary / Seasonal - £450 per week plus weeks of paid leave - England
Trinity Sailing is a Brixham-based charity which operates three historic gaff-rigged vessels, carrying out a mixture of youth sail training voyages, RYA courses (up to Day Skipper level), Duke of Edinburgh Award experiences and adult charter cruises.
Our smallest vessel, Golden Vanity, a gaff cutter build in 1908, operates with a skipper, mate and up to 7 trainees or guests. She is based in our home port of Brixham and offers voyages along the south coast and within the English Channel, delivering enjoyable and challenging sailing experiences to people of all ages and backgrounds.
We wish to recruit a skipper for Golden Vanity for the 2019 sailing season.
This person will hold a minimum of (valid, commercially-endorsed) RYA Yachtmaster Offshore and Cruising Instructor certificates, along with a valid ENG 1 or ML5 medical fitness certificate.
This person will have previous experience sailing traditionally-rigged vessels and relevant maintenance skills.
This person will also be either:
A UK national with a valid passport with at least 1 year of validity
A national of another country with suitable documentation that allows them to take paid employment in the UK, and also travel to EU countries, also with a minimum of 1 year validity on the passport.
The skipper will be responsible for the overall management and operation the vessel, both during voyages and maintenance periods as required. They will also undertake training of other seastaff and trainees including relevant RYA qualifications. A positive approach to developing a “safety culture” on board and embracing current legislation is required in this role.
All job offers will be subject to:
• Interview at our office
• On board assessment
• Enhanced DBS check
