TALL SHIP EXPERIENCE COMPETITION
A WEEKEND TALL SHIP EXPERIENCE
FOUR OPEN PLACES AVAILABLE TO EXPLORER SCOUTS IN KENT…
The REQUEST2021 team have recently discovered that Scout Marr’s Quest journey 100 years ago did not actually end in Plymouth on 16th September 1922 as we first thought but apparently just afterwards in Portsmouth. Therefore, we are planning to end our project in style by sailing from Plymouth to Portsmouth on a tall ship to commemorate the final days of the Shackleton-Rowett ‘Quest’ Expedition on the weekend of the 16th– 18th September 2022.
To that end we have chartered the incredible Johanna Lucretia from The Tall Ships Trust. Photo credit: Tim Winsey.
See https://www.theislandtrust.org.uk/boats/johanna-lucretia/ As she is currently the only UK flagged topsail schooner in sail training, she is guaranteed to draw attention wherever she goes!
The four lucky Explorers finally chosen will be accompanied by three over 25s, two Network Scouts, two more Kent Scouts Explorers and an Explorer Scout from Devon plus of course the permanent Johanna Lucretia crew members.
To make the opportunity as accessible to as many people as possible the fee for the trip for Explorers will be highly subsidised by 80% due to an extremely generous grant from the Deep Sea Scouts. This brings it down to just £50* per Explorer for the weekend sailing. This includes all meals on board, wet weather gear and life jackets. *Note: Transport to and from Plymouth/Portsmouth is not included. Applicants must be aged 13.5+, and under 18, on 16th-18th Sep ‘22.
Participants will need to be in Plymouth by 6pm at the latest (having already eaten dinner) on Friday 16th September 2022 and we should finish in Portsmouth at around 4pm on Sunday 18th September 2022.
