The group's objective was to enable self-development and discovery for young people at risk in South Australia, and what better way to do it than participating in a learning environment by embarking on an epic voyage and developing a sense of self, camaraderie and cooperation!
By participating in these journeys, ship and sailing skills have also been preserved and promoted, assisting in the conservation of South Australia's maritime history.
The ship was launched in December 1985 and took part in the First Fleet re-enactment Voyage in 1987-1988, as part of Australia's bicentenary celebration, sailing from Rio de Janeiro to Australia.
