Apply to race

Why the application form? Short answer: we need to know you have enough sailing experience on board your Ngalawa or enough time and the commitment to train yourself up to a standard to take on a massive adventure in ancient boats.

There's balls and fast learning skills and then there's setting off in a dugout canoe to open water with absolutely no idea how to steer the boat or find land. You don't all need to be Olympic standard but if none of you have sailed before, you'll need to have time to do some proper training before the race starts. Give us a call if you have any questions or just be honest about your experience level and we'll point you towards the training you'll need.
