We operated a partial season last year with strict COVID protocols and plan to repeat that success.
SUMMER WIND, the Small Tall Ship, is a small Staysail Junk-rigged schooner doing public tours and private charters in Baltimore. Seeking a Deckhand for the 2021 sailing season in Baltimore to start in mid-May. Prior experience aboard a Tall Ship is preferred, but not required. A strong passion for customer service is a must.
We do 90-minute public sails and private charters in Baltimore Harbor and the Chesapeake Bay. We do as many as five public sails five days per week, although I don’t anticipate that level of volume this season. We have been getting more requests for private charters and I anticipate more of those this season.
The Deckhand is responsible for ship maintenance, cleaning and preparing the ship for passengers, line handling for docking, setting, dousing and trimming sails and interaction with passengers during tours and charters. A strong passion for customer service is a must. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to rack up some real sea time and experience for their own future license. This is a live aboard position.
