Doing the ARC-USA or ARC-Europe? We need you!

Hi all, I am looking for skippers or crews of boats doing the ARC-USA or ARC-Europe rally this coming May (Tortola to Bermuda leg). I'm a researcher at the University of Michigan and we are doing a research study on sea stress. We are currently looking for potential study participants. We pay $150 in cash for participation. See below for additional information. If you are doing one of these rallies or know someone who is, could you share this information with them? The study website is here. Thank you!



Are you taking part in the ARC-USA 2016? Join a research study on offshore passage stress and help advance the science of stress and passage making!

The Sea Stress Study is an initiative by a group of stress researchers at the University of Michigan. This research looks at the impact of the stress of ocean passage on mood, sleep, hormones, and various cognitive processes such as memory and attention. To this end, we are currently recruiting 3-5 boats traveling from Tortola to Bermuda during the month of May of 2016. Participating crew will be asked to meet with our research staff prior to departure to receive the study and data collection instructions. They will be asked to complete brief questionnaires before, during, and after the passage, and complete a computer task before and after the passage. They will also be asked to provide saliva samples during the passage to measure stress hormones, and to wear a small activity monitor (Fitbit) throughout the passage.

We provide $150 in cash compensation to each crew member who participates in the study plus the option to keep the Fitbit ($150 value). If you are interested in participating in this study or would like additional information please contact us as seas.study@umich.edu.
