Tall ship Meerwald needs volunteers

Volunteers are needed to sail New Jersey's official Anyone who has ever wanted to set sail aboard a tall ship is invited to participate. The Meerwald's sailing season begins in April and there are many opportunities available for those who want to get involved.
Shipboard volunteers assist with many aspects of operating the vessel. They help present programs to students and passengers, conduct dockside tours and much more.
They need not live in South Jersey, as the Meerwald travels to ports throughout the region. Some only come aboard when the ship is nearby, while others travel from port to port with the crew. The Meerwald's 2009 ports of call will include Camden, Trenton, Burlington, Philadelphia, Beach Haven, Jersey City, Alpine and Cape May. Training includes traditional boating skills, ship safety, regional history and the programs presented on board.
