Wooden Boat Festival- update
TSV is working with our new Organisational Member, The Royal Geelong Yacht Club, to expand tall ship activities at the Geelong Wooden Boat Festival 10-12 March 2018.
How to book:
Here’s a novel way to get to the Festival and be part of the action. Bookings on Coral Trekker can be made by individuals or groups up to 10, for a one-way voyage or for the return trip. Visit the Sydney Tall Ships and make a booking.
The Young Endeavour (Sydney) has a great youth scheme so check out their website to keep up with their voyages and news too.
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 left 4 December 2017.
The Ocean Education Centre
“Engaging with the marine environment“
Tall Ships Victoria has developed a project involving the use of tall ships in marine science and research, education, edu-tourism, and marine construction and training. Find out about our centre and what goes on, see current projects-Ocean Education Centre.
Float Alma in 2017
The push is on to ‘Float Alma in 2017′. The restoration project has reached the final stage in completing the hull so the ship can be returned to the water. There is added urgency to complete the hull work as the Docklands development moves along North Wharf getting ever closer to the ship’s restoration site which has been our home thanks to the support of Lend Lease and Places Victoria.
