Endeavour is an accurate replica of the 18th-century tall ship used by Captain James Cook on his epic 1768-71 voyages. The Endeavour voyage programme can at times be mentally and physically demanding with voyage crew expected to be involved in varied ship activities including watches, climbing aloft, sail handling emergency drills, cleaning and galley duties. The sleeping and living quarters are cramped and voyaging crew will need to take part in the night watch roster as well as sleep in a hammock.
As Endeavour sails, the deck pitches and rolls and sometimes even the hardiest sailors can feel the effects. It is important to note that sea sickness can be quite common during the first three days of the voyage as the body adjusts to the different conditions. Whilst sea sickness medication is
