Take part as an individual or as part of a group. For example, your school may run a trip (if not, then why not organise a trip for your school – we’ll help). We go on trips with crews made up of individuals, scout groups, special needs groups, groups arranged by Sailing Clubs and so on. If you decide that you enjoy Hardiesse and what she offers, you can continue to attend as permanent crew, you will progress through the ranks of the crew and work up to Engineer, Boson and Mate. Along with all of the skills in sailing and RYA qualifications that you can gain, you will learn many practical skills during the winter months (for example at the moment a new fibreglass tender is in the planning stages).
