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.
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, built for disabled and able-bodied
sailors, arrived in Melbourne in August 2016 and is operating out of Williamstown as her home port to conduct voyages, day sails and open days until late April 2017. 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.
They’ve already had a great write up in the Outer Edge magazine about their upcoming sailing voyages. See Outer Edge to read full article. For more information about the ship see Tenacious or to view the full media release see their latest news
