Duke of Edinburgh Awards and Youth Adventure Trips (Multi Day)

These trips are generally 5 day, 4 night for youth groups, generally Monday morning until Friday afternoon but can be tailored for your needs

Participants can be school groups, scout groups or the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award participants. 

The structure of the voyage is that the youth are fulfilling 4 stations during the first 4 days. 
These stations are

• Navigation and ship’s command
• Engineering
• Catering
• Deck Crew

Whilst all participate in their stations during the day they will all be required to be on deck for sail handling when needed.
At each station the participants are taught the basics of their roles. 

On the Thursday night the participants select a Master, Engineer, Bosun and one or two Cooks from within their group. 
These elected leaders then take charge of the vessel (with supervision) to bring us back to Hobart.
