Sail Training Voyage
Great for group bookings for young people or adults.
Leaving the Heritage Quay in Lowestoft you will sail with EXCELSIOR for 6 nights before finishing and disembarking in the historic port of Portsmouth.
Join EXCELSIOR, one of Lowestoft’s last remaining Smacks still in service, on an east coast adventure venturing south popping across the Channel to Belgium or France along the way.
With the challenge of entering straight into a full ships watch system you will sail south or East, working with the wind and tide making your way across the Channel into Belgium or France exploring old shipping routes as you go. 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.
We can tailor this voyage to suit your group – it can be great for Youth Voyage / D of E / Schools as its a perfect residential sailing experience. With the skills our crew hold in both coaching and sailing training, no matter the background of those who sail with us, they will still gain an experience to cherish.
Coupled with our own Youth development program we also offer the opportunity for group to take part in the RYA Start Yachting Scheme, which challenges individuals on their nautical skills and abilities, including navigation and chart work, helming (steering) and rope work, allowing you to come away with a good understanding of the basics of life at sea.
The cost of a voyage for U25s is £95 per night with 12 berths available (usually made up of 10 and 2 group leaders) 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. The cost per night for over 25s is £125.
