What should I bring?

All Day Sail passengers must wear enclosed shoes!

We recommend to bring a wind-proof jacket and a hat. We provide sunscreen on-board the vessel.

Is there any food?

The Leeuwin Chef will prepare a range of light snacks throughout the sail. Tea, coffee and water will be available in the galley. If weather permits, food and refreshment might be offered on deck; or you will be invited to head to the main saloon to eat and drink.

No alcohol is permitted on board.

What should I expect to do?

STS Leeuwin II is run by permanent crew members, as well as volunteers. There is no expectation that you participate with sailing operations. You can sit on deck if you wish, and absorb the unique atmosphere sailing on-board a tall-ship. A tour of the ship is offered for those interested.

However, if you wish to get involved and experience the life on-board a working ship, there will be opportunities to join in activities such as hauling the lines, taking the helm or climbing the bowsprit.
