Crew Information

Paying Guest Registration

Maiden will be accepting paying guest crew on some of the legs of the Maiden Factor World Tour. The tour begins in September 2018 in the UK and ends in the Mediterranean in May 2021. We will be stopping at 30 places in 18 countries including Jordan, Dubai, India, Australia, New Zealand, China, Japan, Canada, USA, Caribbean, South America and South Africa. The route and application process will be published in September 2018. You do not need loads of sailing experience but it will be compulsory to complete a bespoke sailing and safety at sea course at one of three schools around the world before your leg.

Permanent Crew Selection

To be considered for the crew of Maiden for all or part of The Maiden Factor World Tour you must be female! Ocean Yachtmaster is desirable but not compulsory – all qualifications will be taken into account. We are looking for women with open ocean miles but it does no matter if these are racing or deliveries. As we will be taking guests on some of the legs, preference will be given to those who have experience of sailing with guests. You must be a good all-rounder with great teamworking ability. This is a two part process with CV’s that do not meet requirements not being moved forward. New applications are now closed, but existing applicants may still update their details.

Mile Builders

If you are a female who needs to get some ocean miles under your belt and would like to be considered for one of the legs please submit your CV. Please note that we are taking one person from each of the stopovers so will focus on Yacht Clubs at those places. The Route and Stopovers will be announced in April 2018.

Day Sailing

On the Solent including Cowes Week. From July to August inclusive; dates to be advised. Teams of six sailing on Maiden.
