dofe group

As part of our 2016 sailing schedule, we are planning three voyages suitable for students seeking an exciting residential with an DofE Approved Activity Provider for their Gold award. The experience is also open to any like minded young person aged 16 – 25 looking for challenge and adventure. These 6 day voyages will take place on Duet on either the East Coast (Essex/Suffolk) or South Coast (Dorset/Hampshire). Please see dates below; 

Sat 23rd – Thurs 28th July 2016 

Sat 6th – Thurs 11th August 2016

Sat 20th – Thurs 25th August 2016

Cost – £485 per person including on board food, use of waterproofs and safety equipment.

No previous sailing experience necessary as the participants will have varying degrees of experience from nothing to keen sailors. All you need to bring other than yourself is a sleeping bag/pillow, warm clothes and stout shoes/boots. There is also an option to gain RYA accreditation.

“The skills learnt during the voyage will help me enormously in the future. I definitely improved my leadership skills and how to work effectively as part of a team; key skills needed in life” – Daniel from Bristol, August 2015 

Just 7 berths available on each voyage and the places are filling up fast, so if you are interested in this exciting residential experience please call 01621 776684 or email michelle@cirdantrust.org
