Voy­age a tall or­der for Tessa

Joondalup Weekender - - News -

NAV­I­GAT­ING, scrub­bing decks, tak­ing the helm and stand­ing watch were some of the re­spon­si­bil­i­ties Con­nolly’s Tessa Caramia had dur­ing her week aboard a tra­di­tional tall ship.

Ms Caramia (21) won a schol­ar­ship from the Sir Frank Ledger Trust giv­ing her the ex­pe­ri­ence on the STS Leeuwin II, which she said would help in her ideal ca­reer as a youth men­tal health worker.

“Be­ing part of a Leeuwin voy­age has been on my list of as­pi­ra­tions since I was 14,” she said.

“My aim is to sup­port oth­ers in find­ing the brav­ery it takes to be­gin mak­ing steps to­wards their dreams.”

The voy­age was part of The Leeuwin Foun­da­tion’s per­sonal de­vel­op­ment and lead­er­ship pro­grams for young peo­ple.

Ms Caramia was ex­posed to all aspects of sail­ing a tall ship, in­clud­ing climb­ing the 33m high main mast to set and furl the sails. For WA bats­man Adam Vo­ges and his Aus­tralian team­mates, tak­ing the No. 1 Test coun­try rank­ing af­ter win­ning the se­ries against NZ 2-0. For the Gnan­gara Mound, with a re­cent au­dit show­ing wa­ter lev­els fall­ing and a de­cline in the health of bush de­pen­dent on the wa­ter source.
