We meet our core objectives through:
Our tall ship Pelican has berth capacity for up to 35 trainees and 12 crew and volunteers, and our tall ship Fridtjof Nansen has berth capacity for up to 42 trainees and 13 crew and volunteers. We have been undertaking sail training voyages since 2007. We aim to sail for 48 weeks every year and our sailing programme is normally agreed 12-24 months in advance. We work in strategic partnership with charities and community organisations, education providers, vocational trainers, port authorities and local councils, to offer a unique and life-changing experience to all who sail with us. With our recently acquired second ship we are expanding our sail training offer with an exciting programme of activities including ocean science and maritime careers and are seeking at least two new trustees to extend the range of skills and experience on our current board of six.
Candidates interested in becoming a Trustee for Seas Your Future must be able to demonstrate the following:

What difference will you make?
As we plan to more than double the number of young people who will benefit from our activities, from around 450 each year to around 1,000, giving them a potentially life-changing opportunity, you will support our vision and strategic direction as set out in our 5-year Development Plan first published in July 2020 and updated in May 2022. We are particularly eager to develop our career development activities, by offering more opportunities to young people, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds, to explore the possibilities of a career in the Maritime Sector or in Ocean Science and Environmental Studies.
