    Dealing with extreme situations

    Our sailing boat offers little room to get out of each other's way during the deployment. Added to this is the tension of searching for people in distress at sea. It is therefore important that the respective team works well, resolves conflicts with each other without violence and also enjoys the deployment. In critical situations, we act according to standards that will be communicated to you during the preparation phase. As is usual at sea, the following also applies to us: in case of doubt, the skipper has the final say in the decision. The following questions invite you to assess your own personal experience in dealing with exceptional situations. These assessments will help us to put together a well-balanced crew.

    What tasks can you imagine for yourself on board?

    (Multiple answers are possible. Please note the requirements. If you are in possession of certain required licenses/certificates, please send us a copy).

    For which deployment are you applying?

    From February 2024, we will again be setting off on observation missions in the central Mediterranean every 4 weeks. We are planning the missions for 3 weeks. We would like to be at sea for 14 days and use the other days for preparation and follow-up. Please indicate in which periods you are available for our missions. You are also welcome to apply for several assignments or indicate that you are flexible in terms of time.

    Is there anything we should definitely know about you?
