It would involve joining an experienced crew of two on a 45 ft steel ketch. Probable duration six weeks, leaving/returning FALMOUTH UK. It's a great opportunity to qualify for Club membership relatively easily!!! Apply through the Youth Sponsorship Programme.

Are you planning a passage? Can you offer a young person a berth?

The aim of the Ocean Cruising Club (OCC) Youth Sponsorship Programme is to foster the development of ocean cruising by enabling young people to gain experience as a crew member on a long distance sailing passage. The programme enables the introduction of individuals between the ages of 18 and 25 to experienced ocean sailors, and the sponsorship award contributes towards the costs of the voyage.
