Members’ area

Adventures Offshore strives to operate to the highest standard of safety possible and our excellent safety record demonstrates how successful we are with that aim. The safety and well being of our crew is always our highest priority.

Crew are required to wear a lifejacket and harness at all times for their own safetyProcedural safety

Prior to embarking on any voyage, all crew undergo a comprehensive safety briefing designed to inform them of the potential safety and domestic issues involved in sailing and living aboard a yacht at sea. It includes a thorough briefing on the use of life jackets - which are personally issued and worn at all times - and other equipment.

We regularly review our Operations Manual, in which all of our afterguard are trained and which outlines the safety checks and measures in place for every voyage, as well as emergency procedures. Adventures Offshore maintains regular contact with its vessels throughout each voyage and operates a comprehensive home and emergency contact system to comply with the requirements of The Scout Association’s “In Touch” rules.


Although they give their time on voluntary basis, all of our skippers and senior mates are professionally qualified, highly experienced sailors that have undergone a thorough appointment and training process.

Our vessels

The Adventures Offshore vessels are designed, constructed, equipped and maintained to standards over and above those set out by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, in the code of practice for the Safety of Small Commercial Sailing Vessels.
