WHEN: 31 Jan - 4 Feb 2018
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.
Current plans for the next Ultimate Challenge are to be held in February 2018. Should you wish to donate funds towards this cause, please call the office on (08) 9430 4105.

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!)."
