  • meet school students who are members of teams that will operate the sailing ship
  • explore the roles of crew members and how they have trained and prepared themselves for this adventure

  • live with everyone onboard – prepare meals, sail the ship, do a stint on night watch, take part in team challenges, do chores, keep clean, and maintain physical health
  • trim the sails and steer the ship on full-day voyages
  • learn about the connections between English, Māori and Pasifika language, with sailing, environment, culture and Hauora or wellbeing
