One and All
History and museums
The One and All is a tall ship based in Adelaide. She was commonly used for sail training, offering courses and voyages that last from between a few hours to many weeks, especially for youth at risk. After being launched in 1985, she took part in the First Fleet Re-enactment Voyage as part of Australia's bicentenary celebrations, travelling from Rio de Janeiro back to Australia.
One and All was built at North Haven as part of South Australia's 150th jubilee project, and is based on a design of the Postboy. As such her bowsprit, (at almost 13 metres in length), has been described as her "most distinguishing feature".
The ship has since been host to youth training and mentoring programs for youth at risk, financially supported by the SA State Government and operated by SA Tall Ships Inc. The latter went into liquidation on 1 July 2011 however. Despite tenders for a replacement operator closing in early August 2011, as of March 2012 there is yet to be any announcement regarding the fate of the ship.
Appeals in the local press for a corporate 'white knight' have seen three potential sponsors come forward, but still no operator.
A petition calling for the State Government to secure a new operator, ensure the ship continues to be used for youth development and training purposes and keep it publicly accessible at Port Adelaide has been established. The first tranche with 1994 signatures was presented to the SA Legislative Council on 1 March 2012 by Greens MLC Tammy Franks.
The One and All has 12 sails and 100 lines to operate the twelve sails it is run by a group of volunteers.
