Crewing on A Tall Ship

One of the most ask question is how to get to sail on a Schooner or sailing ship. Every ship is difference so just keep asking. Visted all the tall ships you can.  talk with  the crews and captain tell them you want to sail and soon you will be  a Schoonerman. 

Pay To Crew  Many ships take crew on for a fee. these trip may be from a few hours on the bay to around the world adventure.  A paying crew might be a guest on some ships.  Yet on other will be expected to stand watchs and work on deck and aloft. Ask so you know what your will be doing. Also you might ask how much sailing you can expect?

Volunteer Crew   Many vessels our own by museum or maritime groups. Some  have volunteers maintance and crewed them they may offer sail training which may be required before becoming a crew member.  This is a great way of sailing , learning  Maritime history, and having a good time, but a person must be a willing worker.

Payed Crew  Most  charter and school school ship have a paid crew. Very often the ship will be willing to train a green deck hand.   Ssome time attitute  and a comitment  for the season is more importance then sailing experience.
