Each ferry service has at least one skipper and one other crew member.  Each volunteer signs up to the  rota according to their availability.  Most volunteers become crew for the ferry or in some cases a Skipper.  Training is provided as required.   All skippers are required to be qualified to at least RYA powerboat 2 standard before becoming a trainee skipper and licensed with Colchester Borough Council.

Volunteers are also needed to help with maintenance, administration and fundraising.

If you are interested in volunteering then please take a trip on the ferry to see what we do and talk to the crew.
