Blue Clipper: Saint George’s (GD) - St Georges (BM)
25 January - 25 March 2021
Blue Clipper traineeship: a Caribbean adventure. Spend 60 days sailing on board a traditional vessel in the Caribbean. During this placement you will take on 4 different roles: deck hand, bosun’s assistant, cook’s assistant and engineer’s assistant – to truly experience every aspect of sailing and living on board. Whether you’re looking at a career at sea or simply want to experience a long-term sailing journey, this is the perfect opportunity to get your sea legs! Experience life of a crew member and explore exotic locations and make memories for life. Please note that this journey starts in Grenada and ends in Bermuda! For Windseekers aged 18+. Before joining you will need to fill out an application form – contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Saint George’s is the capital of the Caribbean island-state of Grenada. Visit Fort George for a dose of history and great views and then relax on a nearby beach. If you take your chocolate seriously you should stop by the House of Chocolate, and if you like diving you can’t miss the Underwater Sculptures!
St. George’s is the second town and former capital of Bermuda. Founded in 1612, the town still keeps its historic colonial centre (a UNESCO World Heritage site) – stroll around King’s square and feel what the Caribbean was like under the British Empire. Choose to tour heritage buildings or the oldest remaining fortifications in the New World, built to protect the city from attacks by pirates and Spaniards.
