in 2023, Fairbridge is seeking interest from schools to join us on a SeaTrek through some of WA’s most iconic marine environments.
2023 will be SeaTrek’s 20-year anniversary in the Dampier Archipelago. Using one of Fairbridge’s fleet of yachts, expeditions are 18 to 24 students with two teachers. The treks start and end at Fairbridge’s Dampier camp facilities.
SeaTrek is a learning experience. Students learn sailing, seamanship and marine safety.
SeaTrek consists of up to four days sailing with three nights camping on one of the any islands in and around Dampier archipelago. Prior to the trek, a preparation briefing at our Point Peron camp facility will be held. Students will learn the key features of a sailing boat, have a practice sail in Cockburn Sound and learn about camp cooking.
In addition, students learn teamwork, personal resilience and leadership. Treks will also include a briefing on the history and environment of Dampier.
SeaTrek is led by Mark McRae – one of Australia’s most respected sailing masters – along with a team of experienced women and men sailors and educators.
Fairbridge provides the yachts, safety gear, fishing gear, support vessels, camping equipment, food, accommodation and importantly a skilled sailing master and guides.
You provide the students and prepare for the experience of a lifetime.
