All our voyages are available to adults with a sense of adventure. STS Leeuwin II provides adults with the opportunity to learn to sail Australia’s largest ocean-going sail training ship, while experiencing emotional, physical and mental challenges, yet at the same time having fun and making new friends.
The voyages are suitable for anyone, from keen sailors, to people who have never sailed before, to retirees looking to make their heart beat a little faster with stories to tell their family and friends. It is an exciting opportunity to learn to sail a tall ship as it was historically in the nineteenth century, with the advantage of today’s modern facilities.
In 2013, we have one 8 day/ 7 night voyage tailored specifically to adults (18+). This voyage will depart from Monkey Mia on the 9th June and return to Fremantle on the 16th June. Participants will learn everything there is to know about sailing on the Leeuwin and ultimately take over all ship duties in the tail end of the voyage.
The Leeuwin operates under the principle of “challenge by choice” where the Leeuwin II is a working ship and all participants are expected to be involved in most aspects of ship operations, from sailing, steering, navigating and cleaning the ship to climbing the masts. The level of challenge is up to each participant. Our many years of operation clearly demonstrate that the more each participant is willing to challenge themselves, the more they take away from the experience.
