Seas Your Future is the trading name of Adventure Under Sail, a small charity involved in sail training, maritime careers and ocean science.  We are seeking to recruit local volunteer Ambassadors at an exciting time in our development, to raise our profile, to attract new sources of funding, and to develop partnerships with youth organisations to deliver our mission. Over the next five years we have the exciting opportunity potentially to double the number of young people who sail with us, but we need additional skills and resources. Could you help us?    

Our mission is “….to educate young people, through the provision of sailing or sailing related activities and other training and so as to develop their physical, mental, and social capabilities so that they may grow to full maturity as individuals and members of society and their conditions of life may be improved”. 

 We pursue these objectives on board the tall ships Pelican of London and Fridtjof Nansen by: 

  • Using sail training programmes to enable young people to discover and extend their abilities, values, passions and responsibilities in situations that offer adventure, challenge and the unexpected; developing their character, resilience, self-confidence, and independence.   
  • Offering maritime careers taster and training opportunities, to experience life on-board, safety at sea, seamanship, navigation, engineering and teamwork. Participants may already be apprentices or this may be their first step towards a career within the maritime sector. 
  • Offering Ocean Science educational voyages to young people who care passionately about safeguarding the planet; these have a particular focus on changes to the marine environment and climate.   
  • Working to ensure that voyages are open to all young people by seeking to subsidise costs for those that cannot pay. 

 Young people need support now more than ever.  This is a great opportunity to contribute positively to the development of young people and to partner with some committed and passionate individuals 

 If you would like an informal discussion for further information, please contact Simon Thorrington our Development and Partnerships Manager,     



We could not maintain our tall ships, Pelican of London and Fridtjof Nansen, without the help and support of our volunteers. Become a volunteer and your time will be highly valued. We rely on volunteer crew throughout the year, and our Tall Ship requires regular maintenance when it is in dry dock in Sharpness or Bristol to ensure safety and comfort for the sailing crew and youth trainees.
