WHEN: 6 - 12 June 2017
DEPARTS: Monkey Mia
Our Open Adventurer is a voyage aimed for those who are still a big kid at heart. We often have adults asking about sailing opportunities, and this is it!
Join this regional voyage from Monkey Mia to Geraldton and enjoy the coastline of WA in a way that many are unable to experience – from the water. A bus is provided for the trip to Monkey Mia.
We continue to run a working ship, so during the voyage you will be part of a whole heap of hands-on activities, from:
• Navigating the ship and taking the helm
• Setting and furling the sails
• Climbing the masts and working aloft
• Standing watch while sailing through the night
Whether you are a university student looking to further your work-ready skills, or a mature age sailor who loves to meet new people – this voyage will bring a little magic to your year. Why not try something a little different – we dare you!
Go back in time and read about the coastline’s history that you’ll be sailing through on the an 1850’s style barquentine ship. We recommend two great reads The Carpet of Silver – The Wreck of the Zuytdorp written by Philip Playford and Islands of Angry Ghosts written by Hugh Edwards.
