Join Us

The protection of our oceans requires a committed group of people to share their knowledge, skills and experience. Just as the ocean knows no borders, W+S’s growing global community of changemakers and seafarers reflects the transnational forces of change needed to shape a new generation of responsible seafarers.

W+S Ambassadors

You can’t be what you can’t see, but female ocean racers, captains, officers, activists and other maritime industry senior leaders are living proof that the tide is changing.

Women+Sea seeks to assemble a group of high-achieving women in the yachting and maritime sector who will join our team as ambassadors to champion the important mission we pursue. Sharing their inspiring stories, serving as role models to our students and others, they will help us demonstrate that a successful and responsible sea-going career is both possible and desirable for women across the world.

Liveaboard Hosts

Cruising host families play an important role in the Oceanid Programme, providing an exciting, real, stable and caring environment from which enrolled students can further their education, gain hands on experience, build qualifying sea miles, while performing a valuable role as an active crew member.

Why be a cruising host family on the Oceanid Programme and offer a six-month internship?

• Help a young person improve their lives and start a meaningful career.
• Support our student break into an industry that has historically not attracted many women.
• Pass on what you have learned, sharing your experience and expertise of Navigation • Boat Handling • Safety • Liveaboard • Maintenance • Crew Management at Sea.
• Get on-going help to crew and look after your boat at very limited cost to you (just “bed and board”) and explore areas you wouldn’t necessarily visit short-handed.
• Learn from the Oceanid Programme about ocean protection and play your part in protecting our oceans.

By hosting a young woman for an internship on our programme you are helping to nurture the next generation of ocean protectors and give them a platform from which to operate.
