DofE Gold Residential

Last season our DofE Gold residential voyages were oversubscribed so we are advertising the 2018 dates early to ensure anyone who is interested can get themselves booked on board.

This off-shore sailing experience is aboard Duet, an Edwardian gaff yawl, where everyone becomes a member of crew for the week.  With a small group of up to 7 trainees plus 2 professional crew, all living and working in the confines of a sailing vessel, friendships are formed, team work develops, skills are learned and lots of fun is had. 

The cost, which includes on board food, use of waterproofs and safety equipment is being kept low at just £480 for 6 days (funding may be available for anyone experiencing particular financial hardship).

The dates for 2018 are:

Saturday 28 July to Thursday 02 August 2018 – South Coast

Saturday 04 to Thursday 09 August 2018 – South Coast

Monday 20 to Saturday 25 August 2018 – South Coast

Monday 22 to Saturday 27 October 2018 – East Coast

Experience required: None – participants will have varying degrees of experience from nothing to keen sailors.

Equipment required: Sleeping bag/pillow, warm clothes and stout shoes/boots.

Equipment supplied: Use of waterproofs, safety equipment and everything necessary for a residential afloat.
