Volunteer Support Boat Skippers required to skipper our support boat. Our support boat and crew monitors the activities of our sailing boats on the water and provided back up in case of difficulty or emergency. The purpose of Sailability Townsville is to enable people with a disability to learn how to sail or to experience sailing with a skilled/trained volunteer. As our service grows we need more volunteer support boat skippers to crew our motored boats. Ideally our support boat skippers will: • hold a marine boat licence • be confident in powered boat management • conscientiously follow our support boat safety guidelines • be familiar with two-way radio No experience necessary, just a willingness to assist. Sailability Volunteer Application Form requires completion (in Files)
