Australia's sail training flagship has returned to Port Adelaide since its last visit in December 2016. Young Endeavour was a gift from the UK to the government and people of Australia to mark the Bicentenary in 1988 and is now operated by the Royal Australian Navy, with the Young Endeavour Youth Scheme set up to manage the associated sail training program.
With the departure of the 'Felix' Superyacht from McLaren Wharf in the early hours of the morning, Young Endeavour arrived into the Port from Devonport, TAS on Wednesday 21st February 2018, with the young crew aged between 16 and 23 lining the masts and cheering as they sailed in to take up the vacant space. Similar to Port Adelaide's own 'One & All' Sailing Ship, which is currently moored in Dock 2, Young Endeavour is along side the Dolphin Explorer, showing off its glory on the Wharf.
