|Sail Training Ship Wutuku|
The flagship of the school, STS Wutuku (aboriginal for driftwood), is a 65ft Topsail Gaff rigged Ketch built in 1986 in Lemon Tree Passage, NSW. She is constructed of Oregon on spotted Gum and is powered with a 90hp Gardiner diesel. She is fitted with an extensive suite of navigation equipment.
'Wutuku' has no winches so all sail handling must be done by hand. She is the perfect vessel for personal development through sail training for groups of between 12-18.
'Wutuku' sailed south at the end of January for the Wooden Boat Festival in Hobart, Tasmania, weathering Force 12 conditions at Flinders Island on the way. She can be seen on Sydney Harbour during major events such as New Years Eve or Australia Day.
