With crews of 24 youth and 12 Navy staff, the ship will sail the Roaring Forties, across the Atlantic Ocean, through the Mediterranean Sea and the English Channel, and into the North Sea, returning via the Cape of Good Hope and the Indian Ocean.
Over 200 youth from across Australia will have the opportunity to join one of nine crews as Young Endeavour circumnavigates the world for the first time in over 20 years.
The Governor-General, His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd) has launched a national ballot for berths available in Young Endeavour during the World Voyage.
Sir Peter Cosgrove, who is the Patron of the Young Endeavour Youth Scheme, met Young Endeavour Alumni and Royal Australian Navy staff crew at the announcement of the 12-month World Voyage in Sydney.
“I think this scheme is a wonderful reflection of our national identity and values – having a go, giving it your all, being courageous in what you are attempting, making friends, being proud of what you are achieving, and enjoying and bettering yourself along the way,” the Governor-General said.
“I encourage Australians aged 18-30 to apply for this exciting adventure. This is a tremendous opportunity to invest your time into an unforgettable journey; a journey not only around the world, but also of self-discovery. I know our young people will be up to this challenge, because I am continually amazed at the capability, capacity, enthusiasm and above all, the get-up-and-go of young Australians.”
The World Voyage will include ports of call in the United Kingdom, where Young Endeavour was built as the Bicentenary gift to the Government and people of Australia, as well as several of the ports first visited during the ship’s maiden voyage in 1987.
The ship will also represent Australia in the Sail Training International Tall Ships Races – promoting international friendship and furthering education and development for young people of all nationalities.
