In April 2019, 15-year-old Dowerin student, Fraser Hagboom, completed his scholarship voyage from Fremantle to Geraldton.
“The best part of the voyage was that I got to challenge myself,” said Fraser.
“As a kid off a farm I’ve never had much to do with the ocean. I learnt a lot about how a sailing ship works and how to maintain it.
“I think the voyage has helped me to gain confidence in myself and to be able to work with people I have never seen before.”
Fraser’s mom, Amanda said: “The opportunity really enabled Fraser to get out of his comfort zone, push himself and build on his leadership skills. He really enjoyed the whole experience”.
