Here are some genuine testimonials from very satisified Youth Crew

I can honestly assure you that all our followers can be immensely proud of this amazing group of Young Australians. Whilst on board Young Endeavour, each individual has stepped up to the many challenges thrown their way with a smile on their face. They have bonded as friends and shipmates, developed a culture of kindness and generosity, and always maintained their sense of humour, even in the face of extreme fatigue. In my own experience, and from what I am witnessing here, a journey on Young Endeavour is so much more than an adventure at sea and chance to build friendships that last a lifetime. I find it encouraging that given the opportunity to extend ourselves, reflect and learn together we can push ourselves to think beyond our current horizons and genuinely start to imagine what could be. I can only conclude that Young Endeavour allows us the opportunity to dream, and the belief that maybe, we already have what it takes to make those dreams a reality.

At 1000 this morning we cast off the lines for what will be the final time in our voyage. We are now on the last leg of our journey - a bittersweet realisation. As we head into watches overnight I know that the friends I have made on Young Endeavour will be with me for the rest of my life, I know these last seven days of our voyage are sure to be just as full of joy and adventure as those that came before them, and I know that I will be there in amongst it all, taking... it in. I wanted to write something about the end of our voyage, but I cannot bring myself to; instead I will just say that I would not trade this experience for anything, and for however much time I have left on this ship, I will endeavour to live the sea life to the fullest, to make the most of the time I have with the staff and the crew, to do my best to ensure that this last leg is unforgettable. - Robert Colman
