As part of our 2015 sailing schedule, we are planning two voyages suitable for students seeking an exciting residential experience as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award. These voyages, which are also open to any young person aged 16 – 25 looking for challenge and adventure, will take place on Duet on the East Coast (Essex/Suffolk). They will also tie in with the Old Gaffers Association Events during July and August, please see details below;
15th – 20th July 2015 – 6 day voyage tying in with the OGA East Coast Race (Brightlingsea). Joining and departing port will be Burnham-on-Crouch. Voyage Fee – £485 per person (an optional bursary of £140 has already been applied).
5th – 10th August 2015 – 6 day voyage tying in with OGA Swale Match (Kent). Joining and departing port will be Burnham-on-Crouch. Voyage Fee – £485 per person (an optional bursary of £140 has already been applied).
You do not need previous experience in sailing 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. We supply the use of waterproofs, safety equipment and everything necessary for a residential afloat. There is also an option to gain accreditation (RYA Competent Crew Certificate) at a small additional cost.
We have only 7 places on each voyage for participants to work alongside our 2 professional crew, so if you are interested in booking this residential experience please call 01621 776684 for more information and prices as soon as possible, so you do not miss out!
