STV Leeuwin: 2018
Comments from young Australians who have recently completed tall ship sail training programmes sponsored by AMWS.
When I came off the ship at the end of the trip, it really felt like I done something amazing. Thank you for letting me experience a once in a lifetime opportunity, to be one of the lucky few to be on board the STS Young Endeavour. - Patrick 2018
"I would strongly recommend this trip to anyone no matter what their background ......you will be able to gain something great from the experience." - Charlie 2018
I’ve climbed to the top of the main mast and read a message that only a few get to see. I’ve steered through a passage at Cape Naturalist and I’ve steered in the pitch black of night. I’ve scrubbed the deck and coiled ropes a million times. I was a Leeuwin Trainee!. - Shawn 2018
"This Voyage further opened my eyes at life at sea, and how important working as a team really is. I can safely speak for most people when I say that we were pushed too, and even passed our normal boundaries." - Johnny 2017
"I would gladly go back to the sea once more. I like to say that I'm seasick; homesick for the sea." - Emily 2017
"Knowledge were tested and unexpected leaders rose to the challenge. We all were brought together and used everyone's knowledge to make sure command day went smoothly. - Georgia 2017
