Coral Trekker – Geelong Wooden Boat Festival 2022

Coral Trekker will sail up to Geelong to join and celebrate their Wooden Boat Festival this March.

G’day Adventurers, who’s up for another exciting and fun adventure? Get ready because we would love to have you aboard our square-rigged ketch Coral Trekker in 2022 for the experience of a lifetime!

We are excited after the last 2 years to be able to offer some east coast sailing adventures again.

2020 marked the 250th year that Captain Cook in the Tall Ship Endeavour, charted the east coast of Australia and started the interaction between Europeans and Australia’s Indigenous communities.

We got to go to a few of Cook’s landing places in 2020 such as Point Hicks and Botany Bay.

2021 saw us in Cooktown, with Coral Trekker as part of the Cooktown festival.

2022, we see us go past Cook’s most southerly, east coast landfall and head on into Bass Strait go through The Rip and onto the peaceful Corio Bay the staging ground for Geelong Biennial Wooden Boat Festival held from 12-14th of March 2022.

This exciting voyage will take 10 days sailing as much as possible and calling into interesting anchorages as time and weather permit.

CRUISE HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Experience Tall Ship Sailing.
  • Interesting anchorages and a chance to see marine wildlife on route.
  • Learn the ropes to tall ship sailing.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Whilst on-board, all activities, meals and accommodation will be included except drinks from the bar. These are at regular prices paid at the end of the voyage. There will be some merchandise also available for purchase as a further reminder of your adventure. Any shore side activities are at the discretion and cost of each individual.
