2024 Individual voyages
Voyages for young people aged 11-25 who want to come and mix with others. Please state your age and any sailing experience when applying, and also tell us if you have a passport or would be able to get one before your voyage; and if possible give us options for different voyages you might be able to join. We will then aim to put together compatible groups, and avoid mixing 11-year-olds and 25-year-olds on the same voyage, or putting a few people with no passport on a voyage where others would love to sail to France if the weather is right.

3-9 Aug, Brixham to Guernsey, 6 nights, £710 per person (not including travel) – provisionally fully-booked – please ask if you want to go on the reserve list
10-17 Aug, Guernsey to Poole, 7 nights, £815 per person (not including travel) – race against other sail training vessels (see below). Ideal for age range 14-25.– 3 places left
§ 24-29 Aug, Poole to Brixham, 5 nights, £605 per person – fully-booked – please ask if you want to go on the reserve list
30 Aug – 4 Sept, Brixham to Southampton, 5 nights, £605 per person – up to 5 places left tbc

Voyages marked § will be UK-only and are therefore suitable for younger people and for those who don’t have a passport. Passports will be needed for the voyages starting or ending in Guernsey, which may also visit a French port; and other individual voyages MAY sail to France if we are lucky with the weather, and therefore passports will be required unless you enquire and we specifically advise otherwise.

Email voyageadmin@oytsouth.org for individual bookings and to ask about travel to our from Guernsey – crew members will be responsible for arranging their travel but we can advise on options and answer questions, and potentially put crew members in touch so you can travel together. Owing to the additional cost of getting the ferry to or from Guernsey, we are offering a limited number of “bring a friend” discounts on the voyage out to Guernsey and the race back – if you book a place on either of these voyages and then persuade a friend to book too, you may qualify for a discount on your own place. Contact our office for more details.

There’s a pdf leafet here about summer voyages – please share it and make sure that anyone who books a voyage tells us if they heard about it from you!

ASTO Guernsey to Poole Small Ships Race in celebration of the RNLI 200th Anniversary
2024 is the 200th anniversary of the RNLI and there will be more than 70 projects around the country to celebrate their remarkable history of saving lives at sea. One of these events will be a race for sail training vessels crewed by young people – and Prolific is taking part!

This will be our voyage 10-17 Aug, Guernsey to Poole (see details on the list of individual voyages above) – but of course it doesn’t take seven days to sail from Guernsey to Poole! The idea is that our crew will join on Saturday 10th August and have introductions, safety briefings and boat familiarisation on board. There will be activities for all the crews on Sunday and a chance to see something of Guernsey, and then on Monday there will be a day sail to get all the crews trained up with their boats and ready to race. The race itself will start on Tuesday but it won’t be sailing straight to Poole – there will be a waypoint to go round and (depending on the weather) this might take us on quite a long route! Eventually the fleet will gather in Poole and there will be events organised with the RNLI training college there – including the prizegiving on Friday night – before our crew goes home on the Saturday.

Please do come and join us! More details here about the race.
