Sail Training Voyage for Young Individuals

This voyage is a brilliant opportunity for young individuals ( 14 year plus), who are not part of a group,to join Excelsior on a fantastic voyage across the North Sea, exploring ports on the Dutch Coast and the Ijsselmeer and including a passage through Amsterdam on a ship canal

Leaving the Heritage Quay in Lowestoft you will sail with EXCELSIOR for 6 nights before finishing back in the Heritage Quay in Lowestoft.

With the challenge of crossing the North Sea, entering into a full ships watch system you will sail into the IJsselmeer and the Markermeer, you may also have the opportunity of topping off at the Texel Island and various others to explore. Sailing past Amsterdam, taking in Enkhuizen to embark on the 24 hours voyage back across the North Sea. Spending at least one night at anchor and having at least one BBQ on the beach you will certainly get to make some memories to last a life time.

This voyage is ideal for adventurous youngsters from 14 years old upwards. With the skills our crew hold in both coaching and sailing training, and two experienced youth group leaders no matter the background of those who sail with us, they will still gain the memories to last a life time.  We will also have an experienced film maker aboard and an opportunity to make a short film about sail training for submission to this years ASTO video competition.
