As a Duke of Edinburgh Award Approved Activity Provider voyages onboard Excelsior are also great for young people looking to complete their D of E Gold Residential Awards.

piers-colby-doe-picIf you are working towards your Gold Award you can take the 5 Day Residential Section onboard our fine ship, sharing challenges and making decisions with new people from a variety of different backgrounds.

This team-based residential setting will broaden your horizons and encourage you to make a significant difference whilst giving you all the excitement that sailing a traditional wooden ship provides.

Please contact us for dates for DofE participants in 2021.

The cost includes food, safety equipment and waterproofs.

Through completing the Residential section you will:

• Meet people

• Build new relationships and show concern for others
• Work as part of a team towards shared goals
• Accept responsibility for themselves and others
• Develop communication skills and effective coping mechanisms

In cases of hardship we may be able to assist you to raise a bursary towards the cost of your residential.
