Tecla voyage goes to Max Searl – August 12, 2013

Newcastle Harbour Rotary in conjunction with NCYC is pleased to announce that Max Searl has been chosen to represent both organisations on a voyage on the Dutch tall ship Tecla from Hobart to Sydney in late September 2013.

Max was one of a number of very worthy nominees for the voyage and the selection panel had a difficult task in choosing who to send on this fully funded voyage.

By way of acknowledgement and a thank you for those nominees who were not successful on this occasion NCYC has organised a once in a lifetime opportunity for each of them to join the Master of a Svitzer Tug and assist with the safe navigation of a ship into the Port of Newcastle.

Max’s voyage on the Tecla has him departing Hobart on the Tecla on 24 September 2013.  The voyage will also be a tall ships race so Max will be able to put his competitive streak to work assisting in sailing the Tecla from Hobart to Sydney as quickly and safely as possible (really just a Sydney Hobart backwards but with bigger toys!).

We look forward to Max Searl reporting on his trip on the Tecla later this year and hope that NCYC will have further opportunities to partner with Newcastle Harbour Rotary in the future to provide exciting opportunities such as this in the future.

Good luck Max!
