The Island Trust – Gold Sailing Residential – April 2024

Join us for a six day, five night voyage to complete the residential section of your Gold DofE award.

You will sail on our beautiful traditional wooden ship, Johanna Lucretia, a 96ft Topsail Schooner.
You will participate in all aspects of life on board, from helming and navigation to cooking, getting the sails up and rowing ashore. You will be sailing in the magnificent waters of the SW of England where there are plenty of hidden coves and harbours with places to swim, visit beaches and have barbecues.

No previous sailing experience is necessary. Our professional sailing staff will show you exactly what you need to do. There is the opportunity to achieve your RYA Start Yachting or Competent Crew qualification if you would like to, but no pressure to do so.

You will have opportunities to reflect on your aspirations or set goals and targets for the future.
