Joining the crew of the Hermione as a boatswain is all about joining a one-of-a-kind seafaring adventure with a human angle, and sharing the values of the Hermione–La Fayette association (know-how, commitment, skill sharing, solidarity and enthusiasm).
SO THE HERMIONE CAN SAIL AGAIN, THE ASSOCIATION IS RECRUITING A HUNDRED NEW BOATSWAINS.
Becoming a boatswain on the Hermione means active involvement in sailing and life on board, as well as sharing your experience at sea when welcoming visitors aboard during stopovers and at Rochefort in the frigate’s maintenance workshops.
Being a boatswain requires total commitment and excellent physical aptitudes, but it’s the ultimate experience when it comes to communal performance. Manoeuvring this warship does indeed represent a real physical and technical challenge especially since today’s crew is three times smaller than the crew in the past while all the difficulties remain the same!
The rewards include learning all the functions of a full sailor on board a tall ship, developing your qualities as an individual, socialising, and a unique and timeless sailing experience. All the qualities you need on board are developed through practice and the “Hermione” label is a guarantee of intrinsic values, skills and ability.
