Please find a full list with compulsory items which need to be purchased from BASECAMP

  • Do I need experience of sailing to participate?
    No. You can be a complete novice. You will be trained in everything that makes you a competent member of the crew and subject to you reaching the required level you will be certificated under the STCW syllabus.
  • Can I choose more than one leg of the #Reslolute Expedition?
    Yes you can, although you will either have to pay more or raise the funds through sponsorship. Those applying for a funded place will have their leg chosen for them.
  • Health-wise what would make me unsuitable?
    I'm afraid the expedition is both physically and mentally demanding and therefore any such issues will make you unsuitable. You must be able to climb a 2 metre vertical ladder (on the side of the Linden).
  • When are the deadlines for 2024?
    Applications for financial support must be submitted before February 28th. Payment for your leg of the expedition has to be complete by 1st April.
  • Are there any age restrictions?
    You have to be an adult - i.e. 18 years old to take part in any of Global Warriors activities, including Warrior Selection. Apart from that if you are fit and healthy there are no restrictions. Currently there are 3 persons over 60 years of age on the #Resolute Expedition.
  • How do we get to and from our embarkation and de-embarkation points?
    We advise and guide you but it is your responsibility to get there and pay for this. Should you require further accommodation either side of the dates given then again we advise you but it is your responsibility to sort and pay for any extras. For funded participants we will arrange everything.

  • How many legs does a funded place cover?

    I'm really sorry but the nature of extreme expeditions can put you under huge stress, mentally and physically and therefore we cannot enrol those who have ongoing mental health issues.
