Derry Clipper skipper Sean McCarter will be in attendance at an event in Strabane on Monday to encourage unemployed people over the age of 18 to apply for a special bursary scheme to train alongside the crew taking part in the 2015-16 Clipper Round The World Yacht Race.

Derry City Council are hosting the bursary information event with Strabane District Council at the council offices in Strabane on Monday, February 23 at 11am.

Sean McCarter skippered the Derry entry in the 2013-14 Clipper Race which received a hero’s welcome when it headed the race fleet during its homecoming stop-over in Derry for the Legenderry Maritime Festival in June last year.
