The organisers of Sail Caledonia the annual sail & oar raid through the Great Glen of Scotland are inviting applications for a sponsored boat entry for next year’s race.
The race runs from the 24th to the 31st May 2014.
The successful applicants could be from a school or college, part of a community-based scheme or looking to raise money for a charitable cause.
Applicants must provide their own boat, safety gear and camping equipment, but the only other cost will be for meals. Sail Caledonia will waive the sponsored boat’s entry fees, and will pay for launching, camping and canal licence fees.
Applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than 31st January 2014. The race committee will decide the winning application shortly afterwards.
The application should include:
- type of boat
- likely number and age of crew
- experience of skipper
- why the crew feel that they should get the sponsored place
