Twice a year, 19 students from across the Rotary District 9510 are selected by clubs, schools, the boating industry and sponsors to undertake a five day skill leadership voyage.

The crew, made up of former first time sailors, teach the new sailors how to read charts, navigate, change sails and how to sail the ship safely.

Nominations can be made via a local Rotary club or by visiting the Rotary District 9510 website.
