Background information for adult voyages
While OYT South’s primary purpose is to sail with young people aged 11-25, we do have occasional voyages for people aged over 25 – mainly on voyages open to anyone aged 18+. (This means that people aged 18-25 can choose to sail on either youth voyages or adult voyages).
These allow us to sail with all sorts of people with an interest in our work:
- Prospective sea staff who want to find out whether they would enjoy sailing with us as volunteers
- Adults who are interested in sailing a 30-metre yacht operating as a commercial vessel and seeing how it is run
- Any other adults interested in some fun sailing in good company
- Former crew members who are now past the age of 25 and no longer eligible for youth voyages
- Sponsors and donors who want to see what is achieved through their support
- Parents and other family members of young people who come home talking about what a great time they have had on board Prolific.
- Teachers, youth workers, etc. who are considering bringing a group to sail with us
- Other charities and good causes doing joint fundraising events with OYT South
- Companies interested in corporate sailing who would prefer their fee for the day to go to a charity like OYT South instead of into the profits of a commercial sailing firm.
- Special day sails for particular groups – such as the confidence-building day sail for Muslim women that we ran in conjunction with Wheatsheaf Trust; the day sail we ran in 2022 for a local school as part of the Southampton International Boat Show’s outreach work; or the regular day sails we run for corporate sponsors, other donors and supporters.
- Teambuilding days for companies and other organisations.:
