James Race Memorial Bursary 2024

Posted by Mary Coles on 18 March 2019

Several members of the Club have already benefitted from the Bursaries and you can read James Peel’s account of his Day Skipper Training here.

The successful applicant will receive a contribution of £250 towards a practical RYA sailing qualification in tidal waters, to be used wherever the recipient chooses. Normally one award will be made per year although the board of HOEOCA reserves the right to vary this.

In order to be considered you must meet the following criteria

  • Be a member of HOEOCA
  • Be “reasonably” new to cruising sailing
  • Have recently completed (or are currently studying) an RYA shore based qualification

To apply please send an email to the Commodore by 31 December 2023 confirming that you fulfil the criteria and explaining how both you and HOEOCA would benefit from the award.

The Board of HOEOCA reserves the right to make the final decision when making these awards and will not enter into correspondence with applicants regarding the approval or refusal of an award.
