Possible to sail the whole year

We have yachts at sea for most of the year for which we are looking for cool skippers.

From 1 week

Do you have a permanent job and want to skipper on your private vacation? With us you can choose whether you want to sail a week or rather the whole season.

Can you already sail?

Are you already a great sailor and share our open-minded and loving spirit? If our recruiters see it that way, you can join the Skipper Academy directly. Then it's off to the first flotilla cruise at JTC.


To apply for our Skipper Academy, you need at least the following sailing certificates and certificates (or their foreign equivalents): - Yachtmaster Coastal (RYA) or equivalent from different Country - SRC- (can be done after the initial application) - First Aid Course (can be done after the first application)

Nautical miles

As a skipper at Join The Crew, you must be at least 1500 nautical miles behind you - ideally some of them with Join The Crew, so that you know our spirit. You can apply, however, if you have at least 1000 nautical miles on seagoing yachts - from there we can consider together how you can find the best way to skipper with us.
