Video: Spirit Of Bermuda Award Ceremony

The Bermuda Sloop Foundation hosted its award ceremony for the recently concluded experiential learning programmes on board the Spirit of Bermuda, with local students receiving awards, and the Adam Goodwin Mariner/Mentor Scholarship for 2021 awarded to Adam Zuill.

A spokesperson previously said, “Students from Clearwater, Dellwood and Sandys Secondary Middle Schools, as well as Mount St. Agnes and Saltus participated in the modified day expeditions.

“All students who participated successfully received a Certificate of Accomplishment. Those students chosen for awards exemplified certain additional qualities that stood out for the crew in terms of leadership, initiative, skills development and other character attributes.

“Due to Covid regulations and group size restrictions the traditional awards ceremony could not take place. However, the BSF expressed its appreciation to crew member James Doughty who shot and produced a video to formally record the 2021 awards. The video will be made available to schools and the public this week via the BSF’’s social media channels [Facebook, Instagram] and on YouTube.

“The Adam Goodwin Mariner/Mentor Scholarship for 2021 was awarded to Adam Zuill. The Scholarship is awarded annually to individuals who aspire to qualify for careers in the marine industry. Recipients typically have been Watch Leaders on board the Spirit, after having completed sail training, international voyages and learning programmes on board the ship.”

“We’re very proud to present this Scholarship to Adam. He’s confirmed he will give back to the community and inspire others to look at maritime careers,” said Mr. David Goodwin, BSF Board Chairman.

“We’re equally proud of what our previous seven recipients have accomplished here and overseas in their education and careers since the Scholarship was established in 2011,” he added.
