Cruising Division: upcoming events

‘Wrecked on the Endeavour II


The RSYS Cruising Division is pleased to invite you to a ‘live’ speaker presentation in the clubhouse on Wednesday 24 November. This event was rescheduled from its original date in September.

The Endeavour II (built in 1968) sailed to Sydney via Tahiti to re-enact the landing of Captain Cook in Botany Bay in April 1970. Squadron Member David Salt joined the crew as a young deckhand.

But then disaster struck. They were on a south easterly passage to Auckland when squally weather hit. Unable to proceed forward or back, the keel hit the bottom, the jibboom lifted upwards, the Endeavour II slewed sideways and was pounded by heavy surf – they were wrecked!
