Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation
Tony Brooks joined the Board of Governors at Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation in 2020 enthusiastic for a new challenge to positively impact the lives of young West Australians. The Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation is a registered charity that supports young West Australians from all walks of life, in providing an all-hands-on deck sailing adventure aboard the STS Leeuwin II, Australia’s largest sail-training tall ship.
Tony’s efforts in his first year on the Board of Governors was instrumental in the Foundation securing $1 million in financial grants, support that was put toward the Leeuwin’s much needed survey and refit works. Success in securing these valuable financial contributions ensured the vessel’s return to the water, doing what it does best, inspiring young West Australian’s to be the best they can be.
