Did you sail on Australia’s largest sail training tall ship in the 1980s and 1990s?
Leeuwin Ocean Adventure is welcoming back anyone who sailed on a voyage prior to 2000 to join in a special Reunion Day Sail event this January!
Since 1986, the sail training organisation has delivered youth development programs to more than 40,000 young people from across Australia. Over 20,000 of trainees completed their voyage before 2000 and on Monday 27 January 2020, Leeuwin is welcoming them back on board for a special day sail.
Leeuwin Ocean Adventure CEO Carol Shannon said she was looking forward to hosting the reunion.
“We know the unforgettable experiences and lifelong memories that are created during our voyages. Our Reunion Day Sail provides the opportunity for people to once again experience the Spirit of Leeuwin and relive some of those memories.
“In the 1990s we reminded voyage trainees not to bring their radios, walkmans and tape recorders – these days it's phones and ipads! But then as now, it’s about being focused and maximising what, for so many people, was a once-in-a-lifetime, life-changing experience.”
Those who sailed with Leeuwin prior to 2000 are invited to bring along photos, trainee manuals and any memorabilia to share on the day. During the sail, participants will be welcome to tour the ship, find their old bunk and share their trip down memory lane with family and friends.
The day sail also offers the opportunity to haul on the lines, help set the sails and weather permitting, revisit the sensation of climbing the shrouds!
