Tall Ships America Compensation Surveys

Posted by Tall Ships America on December 12, 2013

Compensation for Staff and Crew is a critical issue affecting tall ship sailors and organizations alike. When managed well, everybody wins. When managed poorly, things get real hard in a hurry. Making good decisions and understanding expectations depend on good information being available to all sides.

Tall Ships America is coordinating an effort to advance our understanding on this critical issue, but we need your participation. Please complete one of the following surveys:

Mariner Survey: For professional Educators, Crew, Officers, and Masters in traditional sailing ships


Tall Ship Organization Survey: For Sail Training and Educational Organizations that operate traditional sailing ships

The surveys have been designed by Capt. Jamie Trost of Pride of Baltimore II and Capt. Jonathan Kabak of the US Merchant Marine Academy. Data will be sorted and analyzed by Analytics Professional Kathleen Moore, using a statistics program licensed through  Pennsylvania State University. The findings and trends will be discussed at our Annual Conference on Sail Training and Tall Ships, 3-5 February, San Diego, CA.

The survey is quick, and your submission will be completely confidential. With enough input from tall ship mariners and organizations, we expect that these surveys will produce solid, useful information that will be a benefit to the entire fleet.
