The teamArchie Clipper Race Bursary
Team Archie is very excited to offer a bursary for a deserving young person to take part in one leg of the 2019/2020 Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.


* This application form is the first step towards winning the Team Archie Clipper Race Bursary

* The deadline for receipt of applications is Friday 26th October 2018.

* From all applications received, a shortlist will be chosen for interview.

* Interviews will take place in the UK in November 2018, with the interview panel consisting of representatives from Team Archie and Clipper Ventures.

* Depending on the outcome of the interviews, it is possible that two candidates may be invited to undertake the first week of the training programme. Following this, based on a debrief with each candidate and feedback from the training skipper, a successful candidate will be chosen to complete the training programme and participate in the race leg.

* The successful candidate(s) will be required to contract directly with Clipper Ventures, and to abide by all rules imposed by them. Copies of legal documentation, contracts, disclaimers etc. will be made available by Clipper Ventures at the interview stage.


In selecting candidates for this bursary, Team Archie will be looking for people who:

* are aged between 18 (as at the date of their participation in the race) and 24;

* ideally have some experience of sailing, even if limited;

* can demonstrate why they are deserving of this bursary award;

* can show the right personal qualities, a determination to make the most of themselves, and demonstrate that seizing this opportunity will provide a stepping stone towards making the most of their lives in the future;

* are available to undertake the four weeks’ compulsory training between now and race participation, and available to participate in either Leg 1 or Leg 8 on the dates indicated;

* are prepared to raise additional funds (c.£750 - £1,000) themselves to help cover certain additional costs (personal insurance; travel to and from the interview, training and race stopovers as necessary; additional personal kit, etc.);

* are willing to be actively involved in Team Archie on their return by helping to mentor other young people who the charity chooses to support in the future.
