Performance apparel manufacturer Musto is offering a junior sailor a one-year sponsorship.

Performance apparel manufacturer Musto is offering a junior sailor a one-year sponsorship and an opportunity to train with sailing professionals in a social media campaign.

The #sailorsearch competition offers sailors ages 21 and under the chance to compete for campaign support valued at 5,000 pounds, or nearly $6,600.

The winner also will get the opportunity for one-on-one training support from a Musto ambassador and gain valuable promotional exposure via Musto channels. All sailors are welcome to apply: helms, crews and dinghy sailors, and inshore and offshore racers.

Musto is looking for young sailors who have significant experience on the water and have proved themselves on the racecourse. Entrants also will be judged on sportsmanship and their contribution to the sport.

Finalists will be selected by a panel that includes Musto ambassadors Ian Walker, a winning Volvo Ocean Race skipper and two-time Olympic silver medalist; Charlie Enright, the youngest Volvo Ocean Race helm and four-time All-American collegiate sailor; fellow Brown University and Alvimedica teammate, team manager and Melges 32 champion Mark Towill; and Richard Mason, 470 European Championship silver medalist, U21 49er European Championship gold medalist and winner of the Solitaire de Figaro rookie award and the Volvo Ocean Race rookie award.

The 10 finalists the panel selects will be put to public vote to determine the winner. Entries are open until Aug. 30. Finalists will be announced Sept. 5.

Public voting will close Dec. 1, and the winner will be announced Dec. 2. Entrants must be 21 or under as of Jan. 1, 2017, to enter.
