Are you planning a passage? Can you offer a young person a berth?
The OCC Youth Sponsorship Programme is in its third year of operation. Three candidates have undertaken successful voyages in the past three years and we now have a new candidate, a 25-year-old young woman, resident in the UK, who has been accepted for the bursary and is now keen to find an OCC boat to enable her to make an Ocean Passage. Preferably the passage should be 1000 NM making the person eligible to become a full member of OCC but it could be less. The protocol for the bursary award is outlined in detail on the OCC web site:
Any OCC member with a boat that would be interested in taking on a bursary recipient please contact Shaun Peck, the coordinator of the OCC Youth Sponsorship Program at: firstname.lastname@example.org
