Spectators 4: The Tall Ship

The South Passage is a schooner launched in 1993. She hails from Queensland, and according to her official website (see here) was built to suit 14–17 year olds,  to give young people an experience at sea. She was designed such that all the sails can be managed from the deck.  She has an aluminium hull and uses modern materials but apart from an engine everything is done manually.
