The Swiss Sail GP team have a partnership with a Norwegian organisation called the VI Foundation whose mission is to give disabled people improved quality of life, better health, increased self esteem and the opportunity to become more integrated. Here’s a link to more information on the partnership https://sailgp.com/news/22/switzerland-sailgp-team-announces-vi-foundation-partner-race-for-the-future-purpose/

Support around accommodation and travel may be possible. The work experience is voluntary.

  • to be interested in the Sail GP event
  • to be aged between 18-24
  • available the week of 25th to 31st July 2022, in Plymouth
