STS Leeuwin II under full sail.

THE City of Mandurah has partnered with Leeuwin Ocean Adventure to offer a Mandurah family the chance to board the STS Leeuwin II for the relationship-building Parent Project voyage.

The project, run in partnership with Relationships Australia WA, is a three-day voyage aimed at building strong family relationships and communication in a fun, safe and supportive sailing environment.

The $1000 scholarship will allow one parent, guardian or grandparent and one young person, aged 12 and over, to join the journey from Fremantle on March 3-5.

Relationships Australia will run workshops on board designed to develop family relationships between parents and teenagers.

For more than 30 years, Leeuwin has been taking young Western Australians on voyages of adventure and challenge during which they learn about themselves and their relationships with others.

It is the only tall shop in WA offering sail-training.

The Parent Project started last year and uses the magic of tall ship sailing to build some of the same skills in families.

Leeuwin Adventure is calling for entries for the 2018 Parent Project Voyage.
