Officer in Training

The Bytown Brigantine Officer in Training program is similar to a counsellor in training program, aside from the fact that you are not only overseeing youth in your “watch” , you also have the opportunity for further training in navigation, WHIMIS,  VHF radio training and more.   Many OT’s become crew members and go on to secure employment in related fields.

Register for the voyage of your choosing but click “Offline Payment”. Submit a cover letter and resume to [email protected] detailing your background, interests, previous leadership experience and sailing experience, if any.
