Simon Holman (21) works for the Ocean Youth Trust as the full time boatswain on the expedition's yacht John Laing.  He will be on board for the duration of the expedition. Simon joined the John Laing and the OYT three years ago during what was initially supposed to be his 'gap year'.

As the Bosun, Simon is responsible for maintaining the vessel, for any repairs that need effecting at sea and for mothering the various systems on board with which he is very well acquainted.  He spends the rest of his time profitably, smoothing the day to day running of the vessel while pursuing his interest in 'alternative lifestyles'.

Following the expedition, Simon plans to take a break from sail training & to work ashore in a sailmakers' loft, for a few months, to part fund his future studies. Simon has a place at the Southampton Institute to study Yacht Manufacture and Surveying commencing in October 2002.
