In preparation for the 2021 Darwin200 global voyage following Charles Darwin’s journey on HMS Beagle, we have charted the tall ship Pelican of London to undertake a voyage around the UK to test our project systems, undertake promotional activities in major UK cities and ports, and to visit the most spectacular and interesting islands in the British Archipelago!
We are looking for twelve people to supplement our professional crew to sail Pelican during the UK voyage in August/September 2020!
The British archipelago comprises over 6,000 islands.
In 2019, Lonely Planet selected the UK’s outer islands as one of the best destinations in Europe! They are often voted amongst the most beautiful islands in the world, yet few outsiders get to experience them in full.
The Darwin200 UK Voyage will take you to discover the secrets and magic of these isles shimmering in the sea mists. Throughout the UK Voyage, we will opportunistically look for wildlife (whales, seals and seabirds).
Sail on Pelican and voyage around the UK!
We are looking for twelve people to supplement our professional crew to sail Pelican during the UK voyage.
No previous sailing experience is required.
The professional crew will offer participants all training and guidance. Participants will be expected to assist with sailing in 4 hour on / 8 hour off shifts. This is an incredible opportunity to learn how to sail, or to have a unique sailing experience led by professional sailors on a stunning tall ship!
Note: the majority of your participation costs are covered through existing sponsorship. The contribution you pay covers your food and other direct expenses incurred as a result of your participation.
