Jersey Clipper Bursary 2019 - Apply now
Published 14:58 on 30 Jan 2019
Applications are invited for the 2019 Jersey Clipper Bursary – a £1,000 cash award aimed at furthering maritime endeavour.
The bursary is designed to assist an Islander of any age to achieve a particular nautical ambition. This could be a trip on a tall ship, attending a training course, participation in a water sports competition, undertaking a marine biology field trip or competing in an ocean race – anything with a maritime theme.
The 2018 winner was Henry Horton, one of Jersey’s top windsurfers, who used the £1,000 award to gain an RYA Start Windsurfing Instructor’s Qualification at the Galloway Activity Centre at Loch Ken in Scotland.
The runner’s up award of £500 went to 19-year-old Hannah Behan to help fund the cost of an ocean voyage aboard the Jubilee Sailing Trust’s tall ship Tenacious.
If you would like to follow in Henry and Hannah’s footsteps and apply for the 2019 Jersey Clipper Bursary you will need to submit a written application by the end of April. It should be no more than 200 words in length and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
