One and All sailing again

09 Apr 2013

Adelaide's graceful tall ship, the One and All, has resumed some youth trips after an 18 month pause, reports sailworld.com.

According to the South Australian Maritime Museum, over 1200 students are scheduled to experience life on the replica sailing ship, which was built in 1985 for Adelaide's 150th year Jubilee project .

While on board, they learn about the life on the 1800s ship and life generally during the 19th century.

SA Maritime Museum education manager Colleen Decenkelaire told the Herald Sun the organisation was surprised by the strong demand, with the group planning another series of journeys later in the year for about 400 students on a waiting list.

“Teachers really see the learning potential of their students on the ship because they get to take part in an authentic experience onboard a replica 1800s ship,” Ms Decenkelaire said.

“The students tend to remember more of what they are learning from being on the ship, as it's a totally different experience to learning something in the classroom.”

The One and All was built by volunteers at North Haven in the 1980s, but was based on the rig of an 1850s brigantine.

The program is run in conjunction with volunteer group, Friends of the One and All, which is making the ship available for community activities in the absence of a full-time operator.

The State Government is still in negotiations with two local groups - The Australian Fisheries Academy and Adelaide Ship Construction - to take over the One and All's management.

Alt on and all
