Ever wonder what it's like to crew on a windjammer? You're not afraid of hard work, are you? You'll work harder than you ever thought you could (along with the rest of the crew) and also have the time of your life.

  • Live aboard. We have a hot fresh water shower aboard.
  • Eat the same meals as the guests.
  • You only have to take care of your laundry and meals between trips.
  • Sailing experience is not necessary, we'll show you what to do.

The Heritage has a mate who is a sailor and can do everything. He/she often has a valid 100-ton U.S.C.G. Auxiliary Sail license, but it's not always a requirement.

An important member of our crew is our cook who knows how to make three delicious meals a day while accommodating a variety of guest dietary needs, all in a home kitchen setting. No microwave, no electric mixer, no food processor; and oh yes, it's a wood stove, too.

Then there are deck/galley hands. This is a combination position to ensure crew has a working knowledge in both areas as well as an appreciation for what their fellow crew members do.

One might think that crew members only focus on the tasks at hand but they must also be outgoing, friendly, and enjoy interacting with guests.

Crew working for the whole season start with spring outfitting, sail for the season and help with fall layup — in other words, from early April to mid-October. Occasionally we need crew starting mid-season and going through October.

After reading this if you're interested, email us your resume as a PDF/Word document and a recent photo of yourself and we'll talk.
