Round Britain voyage with young people recovering from cancer sailing on board.
The Ellen MacArthur Trust requires a highly experienced commercial skipper, a first mate and a voyage co-ordinator for a six month contract (April 2009-End September 2009).
In 2009 the Ellen MacArthur Trust will sail Round Britain with stopovers in 20 key ports. The voyage will be made up of 20 legs with over 100 young people recovering from cancer and leukaemia sailing on board.
Each leg will be linked to the Hospital where the young people on board were treated including a visit to talk to the medical staff, those currently in treatment and their families about the voyage. The trip is a unique opportunity for the young people now in recovery to communicate with those in treatment.
