Sailor Profile: Sailor 1st Class Jerret Sage

Navy News / June 8, 2021

Sailor 1st Class (S1) Jerret Sage, a Marine Technician, joined the Royal Canadian Navy in 2018, becoming a submariner in 2021.

“I was thinking that being on a surface vessel would be too boring,” he said of his decision to become a submariner. “Smaller crew size and a more relaxed atmosphere or work environment are some pros.”

S1 Sage says he never sails without his personal pillow from home, complete with pillow case. His favourite part of the job is working with his co-workers.

For those considering a career in submarines, he has some advice.

“Be patient for sail time. When it comes, be prepared to do the business and have fun.”
