2022 Voyages Now Open!

Applications are now open to sail STS Young Endeavour in 2022.
Young Australians aged 16-23 are invited to join the Young Endeavour crew for ten day voyages in 2022. The ship will sail to Tasmania, Victoria, South Australia for the first time in two years, before returning to New South Wales. Get your applications in now to be part of the adventure!
You don’t need to have any sailing experience to sail in Young Endeavour, but it’s definitely not a holiday. It takes an entire crew to sail a square-rigged tall ship! Our expert Royal Australian Navy staff crew will teach you everything you need to know – from which sail is which to what all the ropes are for. You’ll also have the opportunity to help navigate, keep watch on the bridge, take the helm, climb the mast, help the engineer and cook in the galley.
The focus of our voyages is personal development. Most importantly, you’ll have the opportunity to learn about yourself and about others, to build resilience and confidence, and to develop skills in leadership, teamwork and communication. During the ten day voyage you’ll work together with 23 other young Australians to take command of Young Endeavour and sail the ship along the Australian coast. You’ll also meet some amazing people, explore little known parts of Australia and much, much more.
Here’s what you need to know:
– We run a ballot ( a bit like a lottery) for applicants aged 16-23 years
– Apply online and choose your preferred voyage dates and destinations
COVID-19 safe voyaging measures are currently in place to protect youth and staff crews
– We’re sailing to Hobart, Geelong, Adelaide, Port Lincoln, Eden and Sydney in the first half of 2022. (Stay tuned for more voyages in New South Wales and Queensland)
