So my story started when I decided to take a second gap year from uni, I just wasn't ready to go back to uni just yet. Then, as if it was meant to be, an ad on facebook popped up and
I should have known that boat was more than just a boat, I could see the Young Endeavour whenever she was docked in Woolloomooloo, I kept my mind open when I signed up for the voyage, I had no idea
Before I went on YE I was an anxious mess. I was scared to meet new people and try things I had never tried before.
As soon as I stepped on board Young Endeavour in Sydney, I knew the next 11 days were going to be the best days of my life. They definitely were.
As we left the heads of Sydney Harbour, the returnee crew were down below, making up their racks. It was a mild, drizzly January day, and the Sydney summer storms were brewing.
My first day back off the boat was the most strangest day in my life, as I exited the boat I felt like I was leaving my newly made family behind.
I can confidently say that my adventure on board the Young Endeavour has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life and will be an 11 days that I will cherish forever.
It was 2am on Day 9 (Command Day). We had just anchored in Scawfell Island and I was woken up to go on watch duty.
I was lucky enough to go aboard and sail on the amazing Young Endeavour Tall Ship.
I had heard copious amounts of good things about the Scheme from multiple sources, so this is what motivated me to attend.
