DofE - Open Gold Sailing Expeditions
DofE Open Gold Sailing Expedition
If you want to go sailing for your expedition but you don't have a team, then you can join one or our DofE Open Sailing Expeditions. Join other like minded individuals, to undertake your training, practise and assessed expeditions from our UK base.
Sailing From South Coast UK - 10 days programme including your presentation
Two days - Yacht Familiarisation and Sail Skills - RYA Start Yachting
Three days - Practice DofE Sailing Expedition
Five days - Assessed DofE Sailing Expedition - Hamble - Cross Channel or UK South Coast
As part of your DofE programme you will be enrolled in the online Inter-active Essential Navigation and Seamanship online course (includes chart, plotting instruments and online support.)
The programme costs from £1,450 per person. The package can be taken in one block of time, over 10 days during the summer. Alternatively, it can be split into 2 phases; the training and practise expedition together over 5 days (Easter or Summer half term), followed by the 5-day assessed expedition over the summer. If splitting the Programme in to 2 phases, it is not possible to mix and match dates - you will need to sail with the same participants for both the practise and assessed expeditions.
DofE requirements are that you complete your practice expedition in the UK, however weather permitting and subject to the strength of the crew it may be possible to go over to France for the assessed expedition.
Prices include food, accommodation, mooring fees, fuel, wet weather gear and VAT where appropriate.
