Sail away on a five day voyage dedicated specifically for Scouts Aotearoa and Girl Guiding NZ.

Now an annual event, the Advanced Training in Leadership at Sea (ATL@S) voyage has been designed for senior Scouts, new Venturers, and Rangers aged 14-16 years from throughout NZ to experience life on the sea, to explore new challenges of leadership, team work and personal development.




We are very pleased to announce the 2022 ATL@S voyage aboard the 84ft maxi ketch “Steinlager 2” in partnership with the New Zealand Sailing Trust  Join us and stand at the helm where Sir Peter Blake once stood leading his crew, as they sailed and won the Whitbread Around the World Yacht Race.  Take on the challenge of the ocean in a voyage of a lifetime aboard this piece of significant New Zealand maritime history.


Here’s what some of the past trainees have to say about their time on-board: 

“It was great! An interesting challenge that I really enjoyed. It was well worth attending. It’s given me confidence participating in the adventure of it all. It was great to meet a bunch of random Scouts and Rangers from around NZ and has given me more hands on sailing experience. When can I go again …?” 

“I came home absolutely buzzing from ATL@S. What an amazing trip!!!! Apparently all I’ve done is talk about it ever since and ask about doing the ten day voyage” 

“I enjoyed it so much and I learned a lot about leadership and boating. It was something really different and a once in a lifetime adventure. I really enjoyed meeting all the great scouts, leaders and crew and made some great friends and memories. I have already put some of my new leadership skills into practice.”
