Thanks for your interest and good luck in applying! So what are we looking for in the crew for this “Voyage of Imagination”??
First we are NOT looking for another “Jessica Watson”. We are looking for one, or two special individuals, who believe they can do this and who are basically good sailors, with some common sense, as that is the mark of good seamanship. Like any circumnavigation, this is just a series of day sails, all linked together to make a grand journey, so don’t worry, you are not about to sail around Cape Horn on your first day! If you can sail from Sydney to Pittwater, or Adelaide to Port Lincoln, Or Brisbane to Mooloolaba, you can surely sail around the world with careful preparation. BUT you need to be really passionate and totally committed to doing it. Remember, you have time to prepare the boat and gain final qualifications yourself and there are people to help you get ready ( including Jessica Watson and I). We will believe in your ability, if you believe in yourself and your own ability!
If you want this voyage! but do not want to sail solo and do not have a team mate?? …apply anyway and let us know, as we may be able to hook you up with a Captain or crew!!
So !! Good luck. Thanks for your effort in submitting your application. We look forward to reading it and watching your Video. You can do it!
