Diabetes WA and Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation are on the hunt for two young people aged 16-18 years with type 1 diabetes to participate in the Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Youth Explorer Voyage in the upcoming school holidays.
Diabetes WA will sponsor the participants to experience the thrill of tall ship sailing in a safe, fun and supportive environment while meeting new friends, learning new skills and increasing self-confidence.
The sailing program is endorsed by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority so participation can earn one-unit towards a student’s WA Certificate of Education (WACE) plus be entered on their WA Statement of Student Achievement. The seven-day voyage sets off from Fremantle on October 7 and arrives back in Fremantle on October 13. No sailing experience is required.
