Four Busselton teenagers are set to experience a challenging week on board the Sail Training Ship Leeuwin II, with sponsorship support from our club.
The four high school students will embark on 7-day Youth Explorer voyages which will expose them to a variety of sail training activities, including setting and furling sails, climbing the masts, working aloft and keeping watch at night.
Sixteen-year-olds James  and Xavier  and 15-year-olds Luke  and Tiernan  managed a pre-voyage visit to the Leeuwin when it docked in Busselton last week. They’re pictured with Leeuwin skipper Angela Lewis and our very own Shelley O’Brien (with the flyaway tresses).
Xavier and Luke will re-join the ship in Bunbury on Wednesday for their voyage to Fremantle. James and Tiernan will sail from Fremantle to Monkey Mia in April.
