What type of people are we?
We are just local folk,of all ages, who are determined, to enable M.V. Freedom to sail as often as possible and to ensure that every passenger has the best possible nautical adventure.
What do you need to be a Friend?
A sense of humour, spare time and the ability to work as part of a team.
Throughout our sailing season Skippers and Crew are available to sail 2 trips a day from Monday to Friday.
In November the Boat is lifted out of the water, Crew, Skippers and other Friends of M.V. Freedom work on her upkeep and maintenance. It is impossible to guesstimate the amount of man-hours that this dedicated team, gives freely to the charity.
They all feel that they are more than rewarded, by the Joy and Fun they share with the less able folk who sail on M.V. Freedom.
Would you like to become a Friend of M.V. Freedom?
We need help with every aspect of the charity:
Promotion, Fund raising, organising events, Scrubbing the decks, Web page, Facebook etc, Engineering skills, Painting and most important Tea makers and Cake bakers
How do you become a member of the Crew?
You contact us, we arrange for you to meet one of the Skippers. He will answer all your questions, show you the boat and explain the training program, which is run by the Skippers. If you are a fun loving person and happy to commit, you will be warmly welcomed by all ‘Friends of M.V. Freedom’.
