CITY OF FREMANTLE SEARCHES FOR THREE LUCKY LOCALS TO SAIL LEEUWIN FOR FREE

 Fremantle residents or students are encouraged to take up an exclusive opportunity to apply for a full scholarship to sail Leeuwin on an incredible ocean adventure in 2014 funded by the City of Fremantle.

Three young locals will be selected among applicants to take part in a 2014 ocean adventure valued at $1980 for free.

To apply applicants must be aged 14-25 years, a Fremantle resident or student attending a TAFE, school, university or youth service in Fremantle.

I’d encourage all young locals to apply for the once in a lifetime opportunity.

The City is extremely proud to support such a great program that has an amazing impact on youth and after speaking to the local youth that went last year I found they had an absolutely amazing life changing experience

The lucky recipients will join up to 40 other youth from across the State on their seven-day voyage and take part in all aspects of sailing the traditional three-masted barquentine tall ship.

During the adventure-filled week they will stand watch at night, meet new friends, climb the 33-metre main mast and challenge themselves.

Run by local not-for-profit organisation Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation, the ocean voyages aim to challenge and inspire young people to realise their personal potential and develop key life skills.

Applications close at 5pm Monday, October 27.

To apply, contact the City of Fremantle on 9432 9999 or download an application form from http://www.fremantle.wa.gov.au/communityservices/Youth_projects/Leeuwin_scholarships
