Individual Young People and Duke of Edinburgh Voyages


6-Day Sailing Residential along the British Coast during school holidays


This off-shore sailing experience is aboard Duet, an Edwardian gaff-rigged yawl, where everyone becomes a member of the 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, teamwork develops, skills are learned and lots of fun is had.
