New Applicants: Requirements
To join the Celtic Song crew you should have logged at least 25 hours on the water. We recommend taking sailing classes from ASA or US Sailing to build foundations.
In addition to sailing ability and seamanship, crew should have:
- Safety-first mentality.
- Temperament and willingness to get along with others.
- A willingness to assist in training other crew members.
Every crew member—trainees, team leaders, and captain alike—started out (and remains) a student. As instructors, we will do our best to present sailing concepts, ideas, and procedures so that you, the student may learn them and practice them. However, it is not the responsibility of the teacher to have the student actually learn and retain the information. That is the student's duty to the teacher. Read more about crew expectations.
