Participants should be healthy, agile, fit, and possess the ability and proactive amicable disposition to pitch in and help when needed as directed by the skipper. Participants should be comfortable with working and coexisting in proximity with other shipmates while on the boat. We expect smooth sailing but weather and sea conditions are subject to change without notice and participants should be able to cope with offshore conditions. The trip and island and pirate party are of a highly festive and carefree if not audacious nature and best suited the young at heart.
