In this book, distinguished writer Roger McDonald relays stories from some of the tens of thousands whose lives have been touched by ‘the Spirit’. Through their eyes we share the unique experiences fostered over 50 years aboard Spirit of Adventure and Spirit of New Zealand Te Waka Herenga Tangata ō Aotearoa.
This highly original volume, beautifully illustrated by Sue Fisher with line drawings, is part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations.
A voyage on Spirit is a positive and pivotal experience in the lives of the young people who get the chance. Our youth development programme offers many highly engaged days in an environment uninterrupted by technology and the distractions of home and school life. Each young person gets the chance unleash and discover their real potential.
The work of Spirit is supported and valued by so many throughout New Zealand and we simply could not do the work we do without funding from so many generous supporters who sponsor, donate and allocate grants to our work.
If you want to be a part of our mission to empower young New Zealanders through the challenge of the sea, you can make a donation and help us to empower tomorrow's future leaders and change makers.

Don't let us just tell you how great it is, here's what our Trainee's think.
This was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. I have been able to grow and push myself outside of my comfort zone and learn more about myself and others.
I had an amazing voyage. I tried a lot of new things, different to anything I had done before. This voyage has encouraged and inspired me to live my life better and to make the most of my time.
I made so many amazing friends and formed deep connections with people. I made countless incredible memories that I will never forget, and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat!
