I was lucky enough to go aboard and sail on the amazing Young Endeavour Tall Ship.
I had heard copious amounts of good things about the Scheme from multiple sources, so this is what motivated me to attend.
We sailed from Port Adelaide to Hobart, it was the best experience of my life and I would highly recommend it for anyone to get in and give it a go.
I can guarantee you; you are going to fall in love... whether it be life at sea, the ship or you develop 'sea-goggles' over your time on board.
Its a Friday night in cold Bendigo where whilst cleaning up I found my letter from myself to myself completed in the last days aboard the Young Endevour.
I recently undertook the Sydney to Sydney voyage of 09/18 aboard STS Young Endeavour, and what a voyage it turned out to be!
Adventure. Something that a lot of people seek for in their lifetime, but whether they attain it or not is dependent on how willing they are to grab opportunities when they come available.
My voyage (03/18) began at HMAS Kuttabul in Sydney on the 29/1/18. I was joined by 25 other youth crew from all over Australia with ages varying from 16 to 22.
My name is Jayden Bonat, from a country town of Gundagai NSW. I came onboard the Young Endeavour on the 21 of August 2017 which was Voyage 11/17.
At the beginning of 2015, I had never sailed a day in my life and had no real inclination to change that fact. Spending long periods of time in a damp, leaky tub really held no appeal for me.
