Fall Crew Training
FALL 2018 CREW TRAINING CLASS
This fall crew training program is offered as a live-aboard option only. Tuesday, September 25-Thursday, October 11, 2018.
You will move aboard on September 25th, and will quickly get oriented to the ship, and safety equipment followed by an in-depth study of setting sails and knot tying. The ship will be in Wilmington, DE and will be conducting our fall education programs, including education sails on the weekday, and ship maintenance. This is a VERY condensed course, so be prepared to STUDY, STUDY, STUDY!!! You will learn everything taught in the 10 week winter training class, but at an intense rate! The great part is that you will be fully emerged in the learning process as you eat, sleep and breathe Kalmar Nyckel for 2.5 weeks! Many friendly crew will be available to assist in your learning process, and you will quickly make new friends. Time off will be worked into the schedule so you can get out and enjoy the city of Wilmington, or Philadelphia during your stay on the ship. You will complete your final exam on October 11th, and may opt to stay on board a while longer if you'd like (subject to bunk availability/ship need).
Non-refundable fees: $180.42 live-aboards ($162.50 payable at registration, $17.92 payable directly to the on-line background check company) The fee includes a $60 materials fee, a one-time fee of $42.50 for a initial USCG drug test, a $60 donation towards your food, and $17.92 for a background check (due before the last day of class). DO NOT SEND $$ or Applications at this time! Wait until you secure a spot in the class before providing the fees and application, to ensure there are spots remaining!
Space is limited to 6 people, first come, first served!
