Crew aboard Ocean Scout after competing in a Tall Ships RaceAdventures Offshore offers a wide range of sailing opportunities each season, ranging from evening taster sessions to 7 day-plus international voyages and Tall Ships Races. Our sailing season normally extends from April to October, with day sails, weekend voyages & evening taster sails available in the spring and autumn months, and international trips during the summer period.

The programme shown is our overall plan for the season, but we keep it as flexible as possible and are always willing to discuss alterations to the programme to suit your requirements. Subject to boat and afterguard availability, alternative weekend or weekday cruise dates can be arranged, together with day or evening ‘taster’ sails. For Scout and youth groups, an offshore sailing trip provides a very different experience "under canvas" for a summer camp. And as an RYA Recognised Teaching Establishment, we are able to offer practical sailing courses.
