The young Endeavour Youth Scheme is pleased to invite young Australians from Mornington Yacht Club to join us on a voyage in the national sail training ship Young Endeavour.
A voyage in Young Endeavour is an exciting experience and a unique opportunity for youth to develop skills for life. Our internationally recognised development program builds self-awareness, develops teamwork and leadership skills, and fosters a strong sense of community responsibility.
Since the ship was gifted to Australia in 1988, more than 13,000 young Australians have completed our youth development program. Young Endeavour is operated by a professional Royal Australian Navy crew who ensure the highest standards of safety, and teach participants the skills to sail a square-rigged tall ship.
Each voyage takes on 24 youth from across Australia. Together, they learn to keep watch and take the helm, handle lines on deck, cook in the gallery, navigate using the ship's charts, and climb the 30-metre mast set and furl the sails.
While at sea, youth crew are encouraged to pursue personal and team goals and challenges. By the end of the voyage they will have the confidence and skills to elect a leadership team and take command of the 44-metre brigantine, sailing Young Endeavour along the Australian coast.
We invite Mornington Yacht Club members aged 19- 23 years old to submit their application at www.youngendeavour.gov.au. Potential applicants are advised to apply now to ensure the best chance of being drawn for a voyage.
ORCV Coastal Sprint Races is a new initiative from ORCV Sailing for 2019/20 season in response to skippers asking for more Category 3 races. They have been designed to provide crew development and a pathway for longer ocean races. Each ORCV Coastal Sprint race aims to have skippers and crew home Saturday evening.
Being Category 3, there is no requirement to for HF Radio, Satellite phone, storm sails or life rafts (for those under 12m).
Come try ocean racing or utilise them as a training together with the ORCV Melbourne to Stanley prior to Christmas ocean races of ORCV Melbourne to Hobart or Rolex Sydney to Hobart.
The first ORCV Coastal Sprint is November 23rd 2019. Entries are now open.
