Tall Ship Sailing and touring 250th Endeavour exhibition - March 2020
The 2020 Wooden Boat Festival are very pleased to inform you that the HMB Endeavour will be in Geelong over March 5 - 15 2020, along with the touring exhibition from the National Maritime Museum, prior to the start of the Federal Government-sponsored circumnavigation of Australia . The timing of these visits adds another aspect for educators to join fun and education together all within a short distance to the Geelong Waterfront.
Come along to their Information Evening for "Sailing into Life" at 5.30pm on Tuesday 18 June at the Royal Geelong Yacht Club. This brief session is open to community leaders, parents, Principals and teachers to hear first-hand the joys and benefits of taking to the sea (i.e.Corio Bay) in a magnificent vessel (albeit for 40 mins).
Our Tall Ship program - "Sailing into Life" has three tall ships committed for our March 2020 festival. This gives good capacity for places on the Tall Ship sailing program - places can be taken by schools, community groups, business and other organisations. The ships are not-for-profits and are also available for corporate hospitality if your business/organisation would like to host a customer/staff event. The presence of the replica HMB Endeavour and the National Maritime Museum opens up scope for teachers to develop a stimulating experience.

We have such an array of talented emerging and established artists/creators in our community…. This is an exciting opportunity for you…!

Consider submitting your creations, we’d love to hear from you!
