The Ocean Cruising Club Challenge Grant is Now Accepting Applications
The Ocean Cruising Club (OCC) has established a Challenge Grant to encourage ambitious expeditions for environmental conservation or challenging oceangoing adventures and is now accepting applications for the 2020 season! The OCC Challenge Grant programme consists of two categories, the Conservation/ Environmental Grant and the Adventure Grant.
Cruising Club membership has had a long tradition of adventurous ocean sailing
and marine conservation activities. Whether high latitudes voyaging, non-stop
solo circumnavigating, sampling ocean waters, or researching threatened
species, OCC members’ adventures and conservation efforts, documented in its
flagship publication The Flying Fish, have helped sailors dream big and plan
exciting and meaningful voyages.
Project lead, Baxter Gillespie notes, “The applications will be reviewed and judged by members of OCC who have experience in planning and executing major expeditions and projects such as high latitude firsts, mid-ocean scientific research, and remote island refuse reclamation. Their assessment of candidates’ goals and qualifications will be based in an extraordinary depth of expertise. I encourage candidates to apply as early as possible to secure consideration as we have a limited number of grants each year.”
