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.

To me sailing is freedom, to power though the water with nothing but the wind in your sails is pure bliss, to know you are at the mercy of the elements is thrilling.

I had the privilege of bringing our ship home to Australia from the World Voyage, and what an honour that was.

I first heard of the YEYS when I was in year nine. Fast forward four years and I’d just received my acceptance email for V19/16 from Fremantle to Esperance!

The STS Young Endeavour is not just a ship to me. To me she is a new opportunity, another home, and an adventure for so many young Australians, such as myself.

I have had the privilege of sailing on the Young Endeavour twice: the first time was way back in 2004 and the second was in 2015 as part of the second World Voyage.
