 How to book a voyage - including booking forms
 Terms and conditions (pdf)

Please note: 2016 voyages will use John Laing, with our new boat Prolific coming into service in 2017.

Further down this page is the 2016 voyage programme, with dates and details of start and finish ports - where we go in between depends on the weather and the tides, and on what the people on board want to do!

It may still be possible to alter some of the dates, ports and durations to suit our clients - please email to discuss your requirements.

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 intiial bid for a full-boat booking but nothing has been confrimed and no deposit has yet been paid, so if you really want that voyage - or a change to the priogramme 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. Smaller numbers in the availability column mean it is a mixed voyage open to individual bookings. 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+.

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. Overseas voyage times will vary as we try to fit in with convenient travel options.

Contact the office to make a booking.
