After a full-on summer blessed with endless sunshine, we completed a quick turnaround on Wednesday, transforming our Good Ship into our winter home and ready to take 150 or more young people from Te Tai Tokerau on amazing adventures!

Our much loved crew of Captain Uncle Steve with old hands Rob and Kylie are joined by our new crew member Wayne on his first youth voyage adventure. Twelve youngsters from throughout the region dutifully arrived (some of them very early) ready to discover what the next week will hold in store.

Master and Commander Russell Harris performed the welcome today as wonderful smells from Wayne’s soup wafted above deck, and then they were off! We look forward to reading and hearing about their adventures as the days go by.
