Two years. Thirty voyages. Three hundred women. You want in?

An organization called eXXpedition is organizing a two-year sailing trip that will travel 38,000 nautical miles. The group will stop in Aruba, Antigua, Easter Island, Tahiti, Fiji, Cape Town, Bermuda, Iceland and the United Kingdom -- among other stops.

The Round the World trip, as it’s called, kicks off in October 2019 and runs through 2021.

Although the group has stopped taking applications for phase one of its voyage, phase two will open soon.

No sailing experience? No problem.

“We are looking for a variety of skills from sailors to cooks, scientists to filmmakers, storytellers to artists. You do not require any sailing experience to join our crew,” the website says.

Just be aware, all crew members are required to contribute a set amount to cover the costs of the trip, and make their own way to and from the boat.
