Dublin is set to welcome The Tall Ships Races 2012 with magnificent vessels lining the city quays of the River Liffey from 23rd – 26th August. As final host port, Dublin can expect to see up to 1 million visitors attending The Tall Ships Races 2012 in Dublin, where a majestic fleet of ships and 3,000 crew are expected to visit the city.
This is truly one of the most spectacular maritime events in the world.
The Dublin Tall Ships Liaison Team is looking for 150 volunteers to help deliver this fantastic event.
They are recruiting Volunteer Ship Liaison Officers to ensure smooth sailing from start to finish. Officers will be assigned to ships in order to provide support to Captains and crew, take part in the social and sporting events - and leave them with a lasting positive impression of Dublin.
They are inviting volunteers of all ages and levels of experience to apply. Marine and language skills are highly sought but not required. Liaison training will be provided in the lead-up to the event.
The magnificent Tall Ships will form the backdrop to a 4-day long celebration in with a host of free events including live music on multiple stages around the Dublin Docklands area, street theatre, markets, fun fairs, and water sports - along with plenty of opportunities to board the ships in port, meet the crews and share their experiences on a Tall Ship.
