19/B31: DofE Gold Open Expedition

Chatham (UK) to Chatham (UK)

29th July (10am) to 8th August (5pm) 2019 (9 Nights) NOW FULLY BOOKED!

This is an Open Expedition for those who are unable to complete their expedition as a group.  You are allowed to join this expedition outside of your DofE group!  If you would like to book this voyage for a whole group, please contact our office to secure the whole booking.

Join Bright Star of Revelation, our new Westerley Oceanquest, in Chatham on 8th April, spend the first 5 days learning how to sail the vessel and participating in your practice DofE Expedition.  Then meet with your assessor who will work with you to discuss your expedition voyage passage plan before setting off on a 5 day adventure (under the close supervision of our supervising skipper and mate).  Meet with your assessor at least once during the 5 day expedition, then at the end where you will be assessed and will also be able to present your presentation to be assessed too.

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!

Included: 

  • RYA Essential Navigation and Seamanship Course - Online (Worth £99)
