The Australian National Maritime Museum has recently announced the HMB Endeavour 2014-2015 Voyage Program and is looking for an adventurous crew to sail the ship on five-day cruises from 1 September 2014.
The Museum is seeking a crew of enthusiastic people, known on board as voyage crew, to sail its replica of James Cook’s Endeavour on one of the following voyages:
2014 Voyage program
- Mon 1 – Fri 5 September- Sydney and Pittwater areas
- Mon 8 – Fri 12 September- Sydney- Pittwater- Newcastle
- Wed 17- Sun 21 September- Newcastle – Port Stephens- Pittwater – Sydney

2015 Voyage Program
- Wed 28 January- Fri 6 February- Sydney- Hobart
- Tue 10- Fri 20 February- Hobart- Hobart
- Wed 25 February- Fri 6 March – Hobart- Sydney
These voyages are suitable for people with all levels of sailing experience. People who have never sailed before will receive hands-on training on how to set and take in sail, steer the ship, keep watch and climb aloft- all under the guidance of the Master and his Professional crew of 16. More experienced sailors will have the opportunity to hone their square-rigged sailing skills on one of the most accurate historical replica vessels in the world. These voyages offer a truly authentic experience of life as 18th century pioneering sailors.
Opportunities also exist for people who prefer a more leisurely approach to sign up as one of four ‘supernumeraries’ on the voyage. As a supernumerary, you’ll experience the thrill and excitement of sailing while choosing your level of participation. Supernumeraries will also enjoy the comfort of their own cabins which were the domain of Joseph Banks and his men of science on the original Endeavour.
