South passage to take to the seas

THE South Passage trip will leave the marina this afternoon for 4 days, sailing along the east coast of Australia taking students on an adventure and handing out lessons in team building and self-reliance.

The South Passage is a 100 foot gaff rigged Schooner, built specifically for adventure sailing and education. 

Students are grouped on watch duties, and often work “all hands on deck”. They will rotate around deck duties such as helming, lookout and recording entries in the ship‘s log, as well as tacking and gybing. There is off course maintenance duties, such as cleaning, however students will often get the enjoy off-ship activities such as snorkelling and exploring.

Leadership skills are built as they are forced to living together, and tolerate other people, while working together to bring the ship home safely, on Sunday 24 July.
