Application Closing Date Now Extended to 30 June

The Windeward Bound Trust and Rotary International have again joined together to continue their special leadership development program to celebrate 100 years of Rotary in Australia and its support for the development of Young Australians. 

Beginning this July, on each 10 day voyage, 18 young Australians will join Captain Sarah Parry and her crew aboard the Internationally award winning Sail Training Brigantine, Windeward Bound, to voyage along the South and East coasts of our magnificent country.

As part of our Nation's recovery from the ravages of Covid 19, each of these voyages will have a local state focus and will benefit young people from Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.

Participation is open to young Australians and Young New Australians currently resident in the nominated states, aged 14 – 17 years, with an interest personal adventure, bringing out the best in themselves and their peers, and in being a part of an inclusive Australia.

No sailing experience is necessary. This program is fortunate to receive generous financial support from a number of sponsors, which allows us to significantly reduce the cost for all participants. Those who wish to participate are required to raise $2,500 in self funding or in donations to further offset these costs.

The Windeward Bound Trust and Rotary believe no one should miss this opportunity because of their financial status, and some Bursaries will be available to those who can demonstrate a need.
