The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Tallship volunteers maintain and repair the Pilgrim and Spirit of Dana Point. From woodworking and sail mending to rigging and sailing skills, these volunteers work to ensure the continuation of maritime heritage. While experience in woodworking and other areas is greatly appreciated it is not necessary; we will train you! All you need is a good work ethic! Sailing opportunities are limited and the majority of needed work is dockside maintenance.
Joining the Tallship Crew is a 6 month minimum commitment. The major work day for Tall Ships Crew is Saturday from 9 am - 3 pm. Tall Ship Crew members must volunteer at least 1 Saturday per month to be considered an active volunteer. You must be at least 16 years old to volunteer on the Tallships Crew.
