Rotary will pay all of the voyage costs for selected students. All applicants, however, are required to pay a $25 applications fee (refundable if you are not selected). In addition to the cost of the actual voyage, Rotary sponsorship also includes the cost of

• All meals and accommodation on board
• STV One and All (South Australia) Voyage Handbook
• Sail handling, navigation & ship husbandry training
• Use of heavy wet weather clothing protection and safety harnesses
• Event shirt
• Achievement Award certificate presented on the deck of ship at end of voyage


Rotary is looking to sponsor young people 15 to under 19 years of age who on the recommendation of someone who knows them well, e.g. a teacher, a sporting coach, a scout or similar leader believes they are

• a young person who will benefit significantly from the challenging experience
• someone who without sponsorship would not have been able to participate
• a young person who has not previously been on a One & All (SA) voyage

If you feel you comply with the requirements –

  • approach a person who knows you well and ask them to recommend you.
  • Then either
    • if you know of someone in a Rotary Club in your area, ask them to see if their club will consider sponsoring you.
    • if the club agrees they will want to interview you, so do a little preparation.
    • if after the interview and the club confirms they will sponsor you, proceed to fill in the Student Application on-line form. The club can assist you.
    • when you submit the on-line application form – you will receive an email with two attachments. One attachment (Handwritten Document) must be completed in your neatest handwriting.
    • proceed carefully, you will find it is not hard. Get a nice smiling head and shoulders photo of yourself. You may wonder why there is so much detail on the medical form but remember you will be at sea for several days cut off from doctors and hospitals.  Of course in a real emergency, you could be airlifted off but if the crew and captain know all of your medical history, they will be in the best position to see you receive the most appropriate care.
  • Or alternatively
    • if you have no contact with a Rotary Club or have been unable to secure club sponsorship but your teacher or someone who knows you well recommends you as a suitable young person, you may proceed directly to filling out the application form. Tick the box asking the committee to find a club to sponsor you if they feel you are a suitable candidate.
    • the second attachment will be the (Indemnity Acknowledgement) form. When the form is fully completed and signed where required, preferably have it scanned and emailed to the email address given. If you cannot find any way to scan the form, it is permissible to mail it.
    • be as early as possible submitting your application ideally three months before the commencement of the voyage. This will improve your chance of having a club sponsor you.  No form can be accepted after the closing date –
