Scouts on tour

Scouts on tour Image

By Ree Maloney

Scouts from the People’s Republic of China paid a visit to Docklands last month, including a tour on board the Enterprize.

The scouts were in Australia as part of a 12-day tour with leader Wong Gang.

Docklands News was invited onto the ship but, unfortunately, had to decline. The scouts happily posed for photos. From the happy faces, it was obvious they were enjoying their outing.

The scouts helped the Enterprize crew raise the Melbourne and Australian flags and learnt a little about the running of a tall ship before sailing out into the Yarra with Master of the ship, Richard Tagg.

The Enterprize is a replica tall ship of a vessel that sailed from Van Dieman’s Land. In 1835, the original Enterprize sailed north and was occupied by passengers that would become the first white settlers in Melbourne.

The Enterprize runs public day sails, private charters, school education programs and more. For information: www.enterprize.org.au or 9621 1294.
