He was sent by King Turgon to seek a passage to Aman and call on the Valar for aid against Morgoth. He delayed on the road, tarrying in Nan-tathren and because of this he was the final one to embark on the last ship that Círdan The Shipwright, at the request of Turgon, had built for them. After sailing for seven years without reaching the lands in the West, his ship attempted to return to Middle-Earth defeated. In a storm within sight of the coast the ship was wrecked and all save him were drowned. By the grace of Ulmo, Voronwë was saved from the wreck and washed ashore in Nevrast, where he encountered Tuor and led him back to Gondolin as the messenger of Ulmo. During the Fall of Gondolin he was ordered by Tuor to guard Idril. He escaped the sack, and some accounts say that he sailed with Eärendil on his voyages.
