The Discovery Sailing Project offers the opportunity to complete the Residential Section of the DofE Gold Award in a fun, exciting and challenging way by sailing on board the 45ft yacht ‘Discovery’ based near Southampton.
Accommodation on board is in cabins, there are three two berths and one three berth (which will probably only have a two person occupancy). You will join in all aspects of life on board and during the voyage also have the chance to gain the RYA Competent Crew Certificate should you wish to do so. This is a tremendous way of completing the Residential Section and offers the chance to continue sailing with the Discovery Sailing Project as a Watch Leader in the future. It is quite possible to progress and become a Skipper in due time!
There are other opportunities by joining us on one of our extended voyages in the Summer period, including a great event for Sail Training Yachts racing from Dartmouth to the Solent.
