Join us in our training yacht for a summer holiday Gold DofE expedition! Sail from our home base in Chatham over 10 days which includes your training, practice and actual DofE expedition. You will be sailing around the river Medway, Thames Estuary, Essex and Kent Coast and potentially across the channel to Holland, Belgium or France!
We do this over 9 nights, 10 days in order to provide contingency due to the nature of offshore sailing. This means that you have the best chances of passing your DofE Gold. The supervising skipper and mate will be able to assist with the ‘tricky’ parts of sailing a yacht, however they will teach you all you need to know and let you have a go at berthing, unberthing and other boat handling manoeuvres!
We offer the RYA Essential Navigation and Seamanship Course which is an online course designed to help you with the basics of offshore seamanship and navigation before you come on the course!
