Shabab Oman II Sail Training Opportunity PDF Print E-mail

On behalf of Sail Training International (STI), the Australian Sail Training Association (AUSTA) and Sail Training Association of New Zealand (STANZ) are calling for applications from Australian and New Zealand citizens with a keen interest in sail training for an exciting exchange opportunity in the Omani tall ship the Shabab Oman II.

The Shabab Oman II is a magnificent three-masted square-rigged clipper, and the sail training ship of the Royal Navy of Oman. The vessel’s key role is to train young Omani navy cadets and officers.

During October and November 2015 the Shabab Oman II will undertake a voyage around the Arabian Gulf with a youth crew comprising Omani nationals and international trainees. This voyage aims to develop self-confidence, self-discipline, stamina and teamwork in accordance with the goals of sail training, and to foster greater cultural understanding and friendship between nations.

Australian and New Zealand citizens who meet the selection criteria are invited to apply for this once in a lifetime opportunity. The advertised berths are available to male trainees aged 18-25. Applications close at 1600 on Tuesday 14 July 2015.
