Further down this page is the 2019 voyage programme, with dates and details of start and finish ports.

The programme does not tell you where a voyage is likely to go between start and finish ports. This is very dependent on the weather, but also on the young people in the crew. Some want to do long-distance adventures and are keen to sail all night in difficult conditions, others want a gentler introduction to sailing. Some groups have passports, others don't; some crews are fit and confident, others include young people with special needs. The decision about where to go therefore depends on you - we don't decide in advance.

Where voyages are marked "enquiry" on the programme, it means that someone has made an intial bid for a full-boat booking but nothing has been confirmed and no deposit has yet been paid, so if you really want that voyage - or a change to the programme that might require an alteration to that voyage - please ask. We will then go back to the original client and see if they want to confirm - if not, you may be able to book the voyage. "Reserved" means a deposit has been paid and we are just waiting for the full fee - it is harder, though not always impossible, to amend a reserved voyage.

Any voyage with "12+" in the "berths available" column is still open for a full-boat group booking. The normal number of places available to book on a voyage is 12, but the availability column says "12+" because we can go up to 15 people in certain circumstances. This may be fairly straightforward for a mainstream group but would require careful consideration if the voyage involves young people needing more support.

A number smaller than 12 in the availability column mean it is a mixed voyage open to individual bookings, and one or more places have already been filled. You might like to discuss this with us as we try to fit people on appropriate voyages and we may be able to give you information about other people who have booked on that voyage - we wouldn't want to book a 12-year old on a week where everyone else is 18 or over, for example..

Voyage start and finish times may vary, so do confirm these with the office, but in general, UK-based voyages will start at 2pm on the first day and end at 12 noon on the last day, except for weekends which normally run from 8pm Friday to 5pm Sunday, and voyages at the start of half-term which may begin at 8pm on the Friday to make the most of the time available. With overseas voyages we aim to be flexible and will discuss start and finish times with clients with the aim of fitting in with flights, ferries etc.

Please note that voyages may visit other countries (generally France). Passports and any necessary visas will be required, unless it is specifically agreed with a client that a particular voyage will be UK-only. This is normally straightforward with group bookings.

Contact the office to make a booking.
