Apply to join the expedition

We continue to recruit for future Williams Expedition Crew to sail onboard the Williams and experience the unique nature of sailing a wooden tall ship as close to the original Williams as we can safely make it.

For many this is a trip of a lifetime and an integral part of the 200th anniversary celebrations of the voyage of the discovery of Antarctica. So is it your time to test yourself?
