This voyage departs and arrives from Fremantle Port. Our voyages enable you to surround yourself with active new friends, develop skills for the workplace and to test your personal limits.
A day on board
We run a working ship, so during the voyage you will be part of a whole heap of hands-on activities, from:
- Navigating the ship and taking the helm
- Setting and furling the sails
- Climbing the masts and working aloft
- Standing watch while sailing through the night
Weather conditions, watch roster and ship positioning affects the schedule so there is never a dull moment.
During the last full day of the voyage it’s over to you! As a group, you nominate those of your peers on board who have demonstrated the skills needed to make up a replacement crew. You then chart the ship’s course, putting the skills you have learnt in communication, teamwork and negotiation to the test. Effectively you sail the ship to the final anchorage.
Who is it for?
Youth Explorer Voyages are designed for young people aged from 14 to 25. Older participants with a sense of adventure can also apply, but for you we recommend the Open Adventurer voyage.
Previous sailing experience is not required, but an enthusiasm to try something new and a willingness to have an adventure you’ll remember forever are essential!
