Gold Adventurous Journey

 

Overview

This is a unique opportunity to complete your Duke of Edinburgh award mainly being the gold award in sailing locally here in Bermuda. Not only would there be no cost of flights, you would be supporting a local family run sailing centre who’s aim is not only to increase sailing on Harrington Sound for all ages and abilities but has a specific aim for ages over 16 years to take to the water of Harrington Sound and learn or refine their sailing skills.

The 13-day package includes 9 days of intensive training to cover the RYA Start Sailing Level 1, Basic Skills Level 2, skills refresher day, seamanship skills and day sailing. Participants will receive logbooks and certificate will be issued on each successful completion. The last four days will be a 4 day sailing adventurous journey exploration on Harrington where they will put their newly learnt skills into practice. They will be involved in camping out on Paget Island in the evening and where a residential project will be carried out.

    “5 star to U Sail Bermuda. Great place to learn to sail. I’ve received my RYA Dinghy Level 2 certificate. Affordable rates for the weekend Learn to Sail for both Level 1 and Level 2. I am a pure beginner, so I like how they are in Harrington Sound with minimal boat traffic and it’s really just me trying to figure out where the wind is. They are all about safety so- someone is overlooking the water watching with a safety boat ready to go if required when you do boat hire (like I did after I’ve received my Level 2). Looking forward to hiring paddleboards and doing some windsurfing lessons with them. Overall, always received great service. All the instructors are very personable- Naphali, Donavin, Jonny and Thomas- Thank you for letting me achieve one of my bucket list.”

    “Had 2 fabulous mornings of WASZP foiling lessons with Aaron, learned a ton and had a fabulous time. I can't say enough great things about U Sail Bermuda, wonderful staff, great service, beautiful location on Harrington Sound, and the boats are in top condition with plenty of spares if things break. I'll be definitely be booking more sessions the next time we're in Bermuda.”
