DofE Gold Sailing Expeditions with Morning Star Trust

Learn how to sail our 35ft Yacht ‘Bright Star’ over the 10 days of your practice and qualifying expedition. (A basic knowledge of sailing will help, but we will teach you all you need to know to complete your qualifying expedition).

Your expedition aim could be to explore, photograph and research the rich maritime history of the Thames Estuary, or to explore and research the number of seals in Kent and Essex Creeks and Harbours or, in line with the Year of Green Action, you might take part in some Green Blue organisation activities.

Our expedition package runs over 9 nights (10 days) which includes 4 days to complete your practice, 4 days to complete your qualifying expedition and 2 days for contingency, rest and food shopping!

The cost is all inclusive of food, waterproofs, lifejackets, enrolment on the RYA Essential Navigation and Seamanship Online Course and administration of your greenform and assessor reports. This is an ‘Open Expedition’ where you don’t have to come as a group.
