Young Endeavour sails in to Booderee

Catching a glimpse of the past as Young Endeavour sails

It was a spectacular and unexpected sight as I went for my morning walk along the beach at Booderee National Park - Young Endeavour and her crew were anchored off Green Patch beach in Jervis Bay. She sailed later that morning heading north to Broken Bay as part of a 10-day sail for a group of budding young mariners.

There’s always something to see at Booderee so I always have my camera. I grabbed this picture of the impressive vessel before starting work at the Visitor Centre - but I hear she sailed out of the bay with all her sails unfurled.

That would have been a great sight and a real glimpse into Australia’s colonial origins.
