No operator yet, but tall ship sails again in Adelaide waters.

One and All, back in action after an 18 month hiatus .. .
Good news for Adelaide youth. In spite of her 'orphan' status - no operator to take over her management - Adelaide's graceful tall ship, the One and All, has resumed some youth trips after an 18 month pause.

According to the South Australian Maritime Museum, over 400 students are still waiting to sail, even after 800 students currently are scheduled to experience life on the replica sailing ship, which was built in 1985 for Adelaide's 150th year Jubilee project .

While on board, they learn about the life on the 1800s ship and life generally during the 19th century.

SA Maritime Museum education manager Colleen Decenkelaire told the Herald Sun the organisation was surprised by the strong demand, with the group planning another series of journeys later in the year for about 400 students on a waiting list.

'Teachers really see the learning potential of their students on the ship because they get to take part in an authentic experience onboard a replica 1800s ship,' Ms Decenkelaire said.

'The students tend to remember more of what they are learning from being on the ship, as it's a totally different experience to learning something in the classroom.'

The One and All was built by volunteers at North Haven in the 1980s, but was based on the rig of an 1850s brigantine.

During three-hour journeys, students learn about the living conditions on the ship in the 1800s, the food the crew ate, how to navigate and steer the ship and raise and lower its sails.

The program is run in conjunction with volunteer group, Friends of the One and All, which is making the ship available for community activities in the absence of a full-time operator.

The ship's future has been unclear since its previous operators went into liquidation in July 2011.

The State Government has been searching for a new operator ever since, with more than 2000 signatures last year collected on a petition by Greens MLC Tammy Franks, to get the ship back in the water.

The State Government is still in negotiations with two local groups - The Australian Fisheries Academy and Adelaide Ship Construction - to take over the One and All's management.
