Working as a skipper or hostess for The Yacht Week is one of the best jobs out there. Skippers will be sailing, partying and enjoying a never-ending summer with people from over 60 different countries. If you think the trailer is exciting, wait until you experience it for yourself! Learn more...

With Yachts and Friends there's no set route. It’s up to the skipper and crew to set the course, allowing them to have the freedom to sail wherever they want. Skippers and hostesses will discover islands outside of The Yacht Week route at their own pace, with no stress of harbours filling up early. Leran more...
