RAN sends Young Endeavour on circumnavigation voyage

Young Endeavour has left Australia on a 12 month voyage."

The Royal Australian Navy (RAN) is constantly focused on preparing the next generation of defence personnel, conducting training exercises and hosting events to showcase what life in the Navy is like.

In late December, the RAN-operated Young Endeavour training ship departed Sydney with a goal of circumnavigating the globe in 12 months.

The vessel is now heading to Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, with a crew of experienced Navy sailors and 24 young Australians. This first leg of the journey will mean travelling through the Tasman Sea and then across the South Pacific Ocean to travel through the Drake Passage.

It's certainly going to be an arduous journey and one that will test the resolve of the young Australians on board.

Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Defence, Darren Chester, explained how the crew represents every Australian territory.

"Following a comprehensive scheduled refit, maintenance and work-up program, Young Endeavour is ready to undertake this exciting and challenging deployment," he explained.

"The Young Endeavour Program has been recognised internationally as a leading youth development program for over 25 years, developing teamwork, leadership, communication, resilience and a sense of community responsibility amongst hundreds of young Australians each year."

The ship is set to return to Australia at the end of 2015, arriving in Fremantle, WA. Young Endeavour will then set sail again, although this time on a shorter journey, travelling along the southern coast of Australia. This trip will involve more youth development.

The estimated time of arrival in Sydney is around the middle of April 2016 - certainly no small effort for the crews involved.
