Welcome to Tall Ships Victoria (TSV), Australia.
The Young Endeavour (Sydney) has a great youth scheme so check out their website to keep up with their voyages and news too.
Peter Harris, President Tall Ships Victoria, extends a warm welcome to Melbourne Sailing Adventures (Alexander Stewart ) and to Jubilee Sailing Trust Australia (Tenacious) both having joined TSV as Affiliated Members in 2015.
Three Mitchell family generations and 20 years of devotion have gone into hand-building this traditionally rigged ketch. It’s styled after ‘The Spray’, the ship in which Joshua Slocum achieved the first solo circumnavigation of the globe in 1898. After working in the Whitsundays for 10 years, Alexander Stewart is now based in Docklands and will be offering day and overnight sails on Port Phillip Bay.

The Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST) is expanding into Australia with Tenacious. It’s the second purpose built tall ship to enable physically disabled crew to sail alongside their able-bodied counterparts as equals.
The tall ship will be here in August 2016 and you can now book your voyage with many options available. To read more about the voyages and prices, see: JST Australia Brochure. To make a booking, see: JST Australian Voyages.
Why Not Welcome Tenacious To Our Shores?
Having left the UK in November 2015, Tenacious will be gracing the Melbourne shores in August 2016. Lady Cutler Melbourne Showboat invites you to a beautiful harbour day-time cruise to welcome Tenacious to our shores.
Bring you cameras and your loved ones for this historic event. It’s not everyday you can cruise to see such a magnificent sight in Melbourne.
