Expedition – Bronze Award

The expedition section of the Silver Award is split into 2 sections – the practice expedition followed by the main expedition. We run the 2 expeditions back to back with a day alongside in a marina in the middle to restock and plan for the expedition.

During the 5 days, our experienced instructors/assessors work with the young people and stay on board for the duration helping them through every aspect of running a 39ft Yacht from victualing, sailing, preparing a passage plan and more.

Our training is conducted on our Beneteau 393 ‘Sequel’.

A minimum of 4 people are required for the expedition to run.
