Applications are now open for the 2016 Young Endeavour Youth Development Program. Young Australians aged 16 to 23 can apply for voyages at www.youngendeavour.gov.au. First round applications close on 10 October 2015.
Youth Crew are selected by ballot, and no sailing experience is required.
In 2016 Young Endeavour will sail in Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria, Tasmania, New South Wales and Queensland. 24 youth will join each eleven or twelve day voyage, and will learn the skills to sail a square-rigged tall ship. They will keep watch and take the helm, cook in the galley, navigate using the ship’s charts, and climb the 30 metre mast to set and furl the sails.
