Captain Kenny hails from Grafton, on the banks of the mighty Clarence River. Kenny joined the Royal Australian Navy in 1994 as a Sailor (Radio Operator) before receiving his Commission as a Maritime Warfare Officer in 2003. This is Kenny’s third posting to Young Endeavour. He has previously held the roles of Navigator, Executive Officer, and Operations Officer.
With a passion for sailing, Kenny enjoys the challenges of sailing a tall ship (he loves tacking), the interactions between both Youth Crew and Staff Crew, and the amazing parts of Australia (and the world) that the ship gets to visit. His personal highlights to date include being selected as Commanding Officer and being on board for the entirety of Young Endeavour’s 2015 World Voyage. When he's not in Command of our beautiful Brigantine, Kenny enjoys sailing, distance running, cycling, and triathlon.
