Islanders with nautical ambitions are reminded that they only have until the end of this month to apply for the 2024 Jersey Clipper Bursary – a £1,000 cash award that could make their dream come true.

The bursary, which also offers a £500 runner-up award, is designed to assist an Islander of any age to achieve a particular nautical ambition. This could, for example, be a trip on a tall ship, attending a training course, participating in a watersports competition or competing in an ocean race – anything with a maritime theme.

The annual award, a legacy from the three Jersey campaigns in the Clipper Round-the-World Race, was established 17 years ago through the generosity of Dandara, Les Pas Holdings and UBS.

The successful applicant will follow in the wake of 2023 winner Natacha Searson, a medical student at Newcastle University, who used the £1,000 to help fund her travel, boat rentals, entry fees and accommodation costs in various national and international competitions.

The winners of last year’s £500 runner-up award, the Intrepid232 team of rowers Rosemary Satchwell, Helene Monpetit, Alison Smithurst and Julie Brady, put the money towards their record-breaking participation in the recent Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.

If you would like to apply for the 2024 Jersey Clipper Bursary you will need to submit a written application by 30 April. It should be no more than 200 words in length and emailed to
