WHEN: 8-12 MARCH
Leeuwin is proud to be the only tall ship in Western Australia to offer an ocean adventure voyage specifically designed for young people with limitations.
Participants have the opportunity to experience the thrill of tall ship sailing in a safe, fun and supportive environment. Individuals meet new friends, learn new skills and increase self-confidence on this exciting, inspiring and rewarding five-day adventure.
We seek 24 young people with physical, sensory or intellectual limitations each voyage. In addition, we also welcome 16 support trainees (18+) to sail the ship equally as participants, providing support, care and assistance when required.
Following initial funding from the Disability Services Commission Community Inclusion and Participation Grant, further funding from Harcourt’s Foundation and the success of the Leeuwin’s Online Auction has enabled participants to board the voyage with a final subsidised payment of just $975.
In order to ensure eager applicants have the opportunity to submit their applications, the closure date has been extended to Sunday 19th February. Applications will be reviewed by the medical committee as they are received and payment will then be taken.

FROM OUR PREVIOUS ADVENTURERS!
“Meeting people who also face challenges in life was great and made me appreciate what I have been given. I can not put into words how much the Ultimate Challenge meant to me."
“It’s a week of the best therapy ever, and our clients don’t even know it! They get physio (balance, strength and coordination skills), OT (they work on their independence in all their ADL’s) and speech (improved social skills and for those with devices and KWS – they get to teach others how to communicate with them!)."
