Voyage Highlights

Happy holidays! Are you working towards your Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award and still need to tick off the residential section? Or perhaps you’re just looking for something exciting to do this Christmas?

Then this residential sail along the south coast could be exactly what you’re looking for.

It’s the perfect starter voyage to get to grips with the basics of sailing and achieve your RYA Start Yachting qualification.

This voyage also qualifies for the residential section of the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award. 

Onboard a world-famous Challenger yacht, you’ll gain a unique hands-on experience and work as a valued member of the crew getting involved in all aspects of sailing from ropework and sail handling to helming.

As well as improving their skills, they’ll enjoy celebrating all things festive with the opportunity to decorate gingerbread, watch Christmas films and eat plenty of mince pies and other sweet treats!

No prior sailing experience is needed.
