Every year many people assist us as volunteers, making our sailing school grow. It is a nice way to stay together, meet new friends and share a wonderful passion!
You do not need to know how to sail to be part of the team, and here is how you can give us a hand:
Chaperon/assistant for under 18s: who can chaperon under 18s from Milan to our Sardinia camp in Porto Pollo and assist them during their staying in the camp. You need to be patience, trust-worthy and reliable to do this job.
Sailing instructor helper: if you know how to sail (cabin cruiser, skiff or dinghies) and would like to teach or only give us a hand, you can certainly help by assisting our instructors. At the end of the season, if you enjoyed being with us, you could become part our staff and will have some benefits on our courses.
Helper to open and close our base in Sardinia: strong and willing handymen :) who are not afraid to get their hands dirty. You can start in Spring (April-May), during the Summer and Autumn (September-October).
Helper to organize regattas, events and parties: you do not need any special skills, only a quick and smart approach and be a good problem solver. Sailing experience could be a plus in organizing regattas, but it is not necessary.
All you need for every role is a good spirit of adaptation, experience of community living and good skills to handle personal relationships. Especially if dealing with under 18s, you need to be a bit of a parent-figure, showing patience and understanding.
If you are interested, send us an email specifying what you would like to do enclosing your resume describing your abilities and qualities.
If you go to places where leaflets or posters of Orza Scuola Vela can be hung (gym, swimming pool, sporting clubs or any other associations) contact us with your mailing address and we will provide you with all the materials.
Otherwise, if you would like to spread the word online or host us for free on your website, we will send you banners and digital files.
Thank you, thank you all from Orza Scuola Vela :)
