Join our all-women crew
helping solve plastic pollution
*** WE ARE NO LONGER RUNNING AT-SEA VOYAGES DUE TO COVID-19. OUR RECRUITMENT PROCESS IS PAUSED AT PRESENT. WE WILL UPDATE THIS PAGE SOON. ***
Every eXXpedition voyage is an eye opening experience out at sea that will inspire and enable you to find your role in solving the plastic issue back on land.
We carefully curate a multidisciplinary crew of 10 women for each voyage – from scientists to cooks, teachers to filmmakers, sailors to industry professionals – who can each use their unique skills to develop solutions. That’s space for 300 amazing women to help us sail ‘Round the World’ and tackle plastic pollution.
While sailing experience is not necessary, please bear in mind the environment on board our working sailing vessel can be physically and emotionally challenging. Our voyages are not restful holidays – we expect all individuals on board to take part in all activities, including hoisting heavy sails, taking an active role in night watches in all weather conditions, and contributing to all other aspects of living life at a 45-degree angle.
HOW DO I GET ON BOARD?
Step One: APPLY
Ready to come onboard? Please complete our eXXpedition application form here. You’ll be added to our database of women from all over the world who are interested in sailing around the world with us.
Step Two: SELECT VOYAGE PREFERENCES
When we’re ready to fill spots on specific voyage legs, we e-mail everyone who has applied to invite you to choose from one of the available legs and submit a one-minute video about yourself and how you plan to contribute to this leg using your unique ‘superpowers’.
Step Three: INTERVIEW
Based on your application and video, a shortlist of applicants will be given the opportunity to interview. You will be able to pick an available time slot from an online calendar.
If you apply for a specific phase and are not selected, that doesn’t mean you cannot join us for a different voyage! You will still be in our database and will be contacted when we release the next series of Round the World voyage legs.
Step Four: FUNDRAISE
Successful interviewees will be invited to join one of our crews!
Please note, all crew members are required to contribute a set amount to cover the costs of the eXXpedition, and make their own way to and from the boat. Many of our crew have very successfully fundraised to cover these costs. You can see the crew contribution for each voyage leg above.
Step Five: SAIL
Once the process is done, and all the information and payment is submitted, all that is left is to come meet us on shore for a journey that will shift the way you feel, think and act forever. We can’t wait to meet you onboard!
