DofE - Residential Sailing Courses

DofE Residential icon  Duke of Edinburgh's Award

As one of Britain's leading providers of RYA cruising courses and adventure sailing expeditions, we are able to offer a variety of shore-based and sailing experiences.  Our 5 day practical courses may meet the criteria for the DofE Residential section of the DofE Gold Award. Please however check with your DofE leader that they are happy to approve the course, before registering with us.

Come along and learn a new skill or expand on your experience whilst gaining an RYA qualification. Our live aboard practical sailing opportunities run all through the year. 

*PLEASE NOTE Our maximum group size for RYA courses is 5. Therefore if you are thinking about using the course for your Residential section, to comply with the DofE Gold Residential guidelines you will need to join on your own and not with a friend or group of friends. Please get this course approved by your DofE leader before registering with us.
