2021-2023 volunteer call- Hawila needs you!

Join a one year refit in Denmark

Hawila is looking for volunteers from September 2021 to June 2022 for major refit in Holbæk, Denmark.

The refit will last up to a year to convert Hawila into a commercial registered vessel with a transformation of the mess-room to allow the transport of cargo.

The team will consist of 8-16 people. We aim to keep an enriching working atmosphere that sustains a good community life.

You will join as a volunteer. In addition to becoming part of the Hawila community, being hosted and provided wholesome meals we will make specific arrangements with each volunteer depending on the length of their volunteering period, their skills and previous experiences.

As a common reward, all volunteers will be offered days of sailing in exchange for their time and commitment. Specific details and arrangements will be explained once the application round will be closed.

Tools and working clothes will be provided by Hawila but you are welcome to bring your own beloved toolbox.

A minimum commitment of 1 month is required for all volunteers; we believe that’s the minimum to integrate within the community and sustain a continuous, efficient and interesting learning/volunteering experience.

Needed from September 2021:

woodworker, carpenter, boatbuilder, jack of all trades. Later in the refit (from spring 2022): Sailmakers, Riggers, Electricians, Mechanics.

Refit plan:

Framing and planking below and above water line, keel work (mid-ship keelson, keel bolts), caulking, decking, rigging work, 2 additional bulkheads, new sails, new electrics.

How to apply?:

If you are interested, send us an application email with a few words about you, your motivation to join the adventure, your experiences and possibly a CV to volunteer@hawilaproject.org

We will be receiving applications until August 15th.

Fair Winds!

Hawila Crew
