Geraldton School Sail

Event Date: 15th Jun 2017

This June, the STS Leeuwin II has two available voyages for Geraldton youth.

Whilst we are in town, the crew will be running an exclusive 3-hour School Sail for interested youth to catch a glimpse of what a week-long voyage is all about.

The Leeuwin has offered each of the local high schools places on this experience, and students are selected through each school. If you are interested in getting onboard, contact your Student Services Officer at your high school.

DATE: Thursday 15 June 9am – 12pm

PARTICIPANT INFORMATION

Passengers will assemble at 8.00am in the car park behind the Mid West Ports Authority building (298 Marine Terrace, Geraldton WA 6530) – one hour prior to ship departure. A Leeuwin representative/s will meet you there. The STS Leeuwin II (ship) will be alongside in the Port and following registration, a bus will transfer all passengers to the ship. The last bus will leave the car park at 8.30am – if you miss the bus, you miss the boat!
