Sailing charity launches crew search for round-Britain challenge

A charity which helps injured veterans is launching a recruitment drive with a difference – to find an adventure-seeking crew for a round-Britain sailing expedition on board a classic tall ship.

Last summer the ‘Spirit of Falmouth’ set sail on the Turn to Starboard Round Britain Challenge 2016 clocking up more than 2000 nautical miles.

Now the Falmouth-based charity is calling out for military veterans affected by operations – with or without sailing experience – to join a second 8-week expedition setting sail on August 1.

Charity founder Shaun Pascoe said: “Sailing experience is not required as guidance will be given by our highly skilled crew in a fun, unique and supportive environment. So, whether you, or someone you know, is interested in taking part in a once-in-a-lifetime expedition, please ask them to get in touch.”

To make an application or for more information call Ellen on 01326 314262 or email ellen@turntostarboard.co.uk. Application deadline May 31.
