We’re in talks with the weatherman, but it’s likely we’ll be doing in-boat projects this weekend. We will be winterizing Yankee; painting, insulating, water-proofing and the like. Work satisfaction guaranteed!

Let us know what skill you have. We are all for teaching anyone who wants to learn and can take instruction. Click-click-click here and look at some real quick videos of volunteers at Work-Aboard earlier in the year.

We fill your rumbling tummies at lunch time after your hard labour. Scrumptious! If you’ve a special dietary requirement you may want to bring something to eat, especially if you’re vegan, vegetarian or gluten-intolerant. There will be something for you to have, but maybe not a full-meal-amount!

Coming from afar? We can accommodate you in our ForPeak Cabin so you’re well rested for the Sunday’s work.

ForPeak Cabin… zzzzznoze here!

Make sure you wear clothes that keep you toasty and warm and that you don’t mind dirtying a little!

So, Work-Aboarders! Sign up below so we know you’re coming! It’s a worthwhile and fulfilling weekend! And greatly appreciated by our dear gal Yankee.
