Sail Caribbean British Virgin Islands Placement (SCBVIP) sent 3 recent graduates of Irish Outdoor Education related courses to complete an 11 week work placement during the summer of 2014 sailing in the Caribbean with Sail Caribbean.
Throughout the placement, participants assisted the Captain in leading others through sailing, instruction of curriculum, shipboard life, land and water activities, time management and group living. They also assisted in the facilitation of group dynamics onboard and planning of activities that challenge students. Candidates received command experience and award opportunities while with Sail Caribbean in the British Virgin Islands.
The programme has been noted as having added substantially to participant’s employability in the sector. It also contributes to the prerequisites for Irish Sailing Association / Royal Yachting Association qualifications.
