Covid guidance

One of our top priorities continues to be keeping everyone as safe as possible from Covid-19, and minimising the risk of voyage cancellation due to infection on board

Crew Covid Guidance (March 2023) – a short gude for everyone sailing on board Prolific, plus parents, carers, guardians and group organisers.

This document explains

  • Precautions we will take to minimise the risk of bringing infection on board
  • Procedures we will follow if we have any concerns about infection during a voyage
  • Some changes to normal routines and practices during our voyages

It includes some things which you MUST agree to before sailing and which will be a condition of booking in 2023.


OYT South Covid Standard Operations Procedures (March 2023) – a much longer document intended for skippers and staff on board, covering OYT South’s detailed procedures before, during and after a voyage to minimise the risk of infection on board and to manage any issues arising on board.

New sailing programmes tend to be published in the early summer each year for the following year, which means we start looking at the next year’s plans in around May each year. If you are involved with a group which would like to book one or more voyages on board Prolific, please contact to discuss your requirements.
