I have attached a flyer for the subsidised general public voyage in the upcoming holidays. The regular price was over $1000 and we have reduced it to only $500 to make it more affordable for students looking for something interesting and a bit different to do over the holidays. This price covers all meals, accommodation, safety equipment and training and is inclusive of GST.
The voyage departs from Half Moon Bay Marina, 25-29 Buckley St, Yorkeys Knob at 8am on Saturday 7th and returns on Friday 13th July by 4pm after sailing for 7 days around the outer reef. This is a fabulous opportunity where team building, resilience, communication and leadership skills can be nurtured and developed as they learn to sail a 100ft gaff-rigged schooner the traditional way.
We would love to hear from interested young people from your marina community. They need to call us during office hours on (07) 3893 3777.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is any other information that you need.
