Sail with us as part of your expedition

With Quaystage Training you can also gain credit for the expedition section of the Silver and Gold Awards on board our vessels. 

Throughout the season we run 9 day DofE voyages, especially for groups or individual young people wishing to sail as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.

These expeditions are classed as 'Other Adventurous Projects' and involve a considerable amount of preparation time before the expedition voyage, to ensure that the group is taking as active a part as possible in the running of the boat.

This preparation time involves theory sessions, expedition planning and both an introduction voyage and a practice expedition.


Example Expeditions Programme 

  • Saturday - Day Sail: learning the ropes on the vessel 

  • Sunday - Theory Day: learning basics of navigation 

  • Monday - Theory Day 2: Navigation and basics of route planning
  • Tuesday - Thursday - Sail Training 
  • Thursday - Expedition Prep Day
  • Friday - Sunday - Your adventure starts 

Throughout your expedition, our instructor will be there to teach you what you need to plan and lead your expedition. During the expedition stage he will be assessing you, but also be there to ensure your safety and that of the other crew on board.
