Atlantic Challenge Great Britain

Have you got a spirit of adventure? 

Are you looking for a new challenge?

Atlantic Challenge Great Britain selects and trains a young crew to represent Great Britain in the Atlantic Challenge International Contests of Seamanship, which take place every two years in a different host nation.

Last year we returned from the 2016 Contest in Roskilde Denmark, where GB finished in fourth place. Our attention has now turned to finding and training a crew for the next Atlantic Challenge, taking place in Antrim, Northern Ireland in July 2018.

Previous sailing or rowing experience is not necessary but you will want to learn how to handle a 38ft traditional gig and have an interest in the traditions of seamanship that are such an important part of our heritage.

If you have a spirit of adventure, and are looking for a new challenge, then why not apply to become a crew member for the next Atlantic Challenge in 2018.
