Get onboard with Alma Doepel

Get onboard with Alma Doepel Image

By Bill Reid

Volunteer with the Alma Doepel Supporters Club and learn new skills.

Become an important part of the Docklands story and join our journey of discovery by being involved in the community, restoring our last heritage vessels.

The tall ship Alma Doepel, launched October 10, 1903, is being carefully restored by a team of passionate volunteers. Since January 2009 more than 47,000 hours of voluntary work has been put into the restoration. You see the progress that is recorded at http://www.almadoepelchronicles.wordpress.com

We encourage enthusiastic people to join the team and learn traditional wooden boat building techniques or put your existing skills to good use as you contribute to the restoration process currently underway.

Once completed, Alma Doepel will resume her role of youth development through youth sail training.

So why not challenge yourself by being a part of our dedicated team of volunteers and shipwrights returning this last remaining Australian tall ship to her former glory.

Tall ship sailing is unmatched in its abilities to achieve outcomes with young people. Being part of a tall ship crew builds resilience, leadership, teamwork and communication skills while boosting confidence and self esteem that enables young people to achieve their own goals and ambitions and helping them to realise their true potential as an individual and team player.

These outcomes have proven to combat depression in youth that can lead to suicide.
