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 from her home port to the Thames Estuary and back. During this voyage we are hoping to meet up with other Youth Sail training shipos.

Leaving the Heritage Quay in Lowestoft you will sail with EXCELSIOR for 4 nights before finishing back in the Heritage Quay in Lowestoft.

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.

All participants will also have the the opportunity to come away with an RYA Competent Crew qualification and add sea miles to their RYA log book

This voyage is also ideal for young people looking for a unique and exciting opportunity to complete the Residential component of their Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award.

The cost of a voyage for U25s is £95 per night with 10 berths available  inclusive of all on board food and refreshments. However, we can subsidise this cost by utilising the Excelsior Trust Bursary fund to enable as many people as possible to access this sail training. We also work with local and national organisations that we can put you in touch with to further subsidise the costs.

OVER 14 Year olds only – Life at sea can be tough, we want you to enjoy it still!
