Become a Professional Crew Member
Are you interested in joining the crew aboard the Lynx? Here are some important facts you should know. Lynx is an accurate interpretation of the original Privateer Schooner of the same name and was launched on July 28, 2001, in Rockport, Maine. The Lynx is a very special vessel with a noble mission. In her primary role, Lynx acts as a dynamic educational platform. The Lynx provides a unique opportunity for students to interact with an American history lesson and render a hands-on experience. As a Lynx crewmember, you will play a key role in the education of children by helping them to understand what the life of a sailor was really like back in 1812.
In addition, you’ll find yourself playing host to a wide variety of guests. Versatility is key here as young students, Boy Scouts, senior citizens, families, corporate trainees, and other groups will eventually make their way aboard for various functions and training sessions. The Lynx crew position requires maritime skills as well as the necessary people skills to accommodate a wide variety of guests. If you are personable, outgoing, and enjoy interactions, we would like to have you aboard. The operative words here are seamanship as well as showmanship. If the Lynx program is of interest to you and you think you are the right person to help us complete our mission goal, please download the PDF Employment Application file and follow the instructions to apply by mail. We look forward to hearing from you.
The Lynx occasionally has volunteer crew positions available and welcomes motivated individuals who are interested in contributing their special talents or attributes while aboard. Those interested can check the calendar of upcoming events and trips and contact the organization to inquire about volunteering.
