Crew selection and trials have begun, and while the team has yet to make any official announcements, it's safe to assume that many of Walker’s lieutenants from Green Dragon will be headed to Abu Dhabi this winter. The team is also committed to finding Emirati nationals to join the sailing and shore team. "We are searching for a compatriot with steely determination, enduring physicality, strength of mind, quick intelligence, and dynamic personality to be part of our multinational crew who will aim to win honors for the Emirate. Whoever is selected will take on the considerable responsibility of working towards, and sharing, the aspirations of their homeland," said His Highness Sheikh Sultan Bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, chairman of Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority. Applications were set to close October 24, but you can still apply through the team website, providing you meet the nationality and eligibility requirements.
