CORONAVIRUS:

To all our customers and supporters,

These are unprecedented times, and whilst our trustees initially tried very hard to ensure that we were open for business as usual, we have had to accept that we have been overtaken by events. Both government advice on social distancing, and the Scout Association decision to suspend all Scouting activity, have caused us to cancel our planned programme for the next few weeks. We have made the decision to review our voyages four weeks ahead of the date they are due to sail. If we find we are unable to go ahead with a voyage due to the restrictions imposed on us, we will contact our customers individually.

We know how much our young crewmembers benefit from the voyages that we offer, and we feel very sorry that we might disappoint anyone. We would like to think that our customers will be understanding of the situation, and we hope that we can re-schedule any disrupted voyages. Please be assured that if your voyage is likely to be affected, we will be in touch with you four weeks before you are due to sail.

As soon as restrictions are eased, and once we consider it safe to operate our voyages we will get back to running our full programme. We are really looking forward to going sailing again, and very much hope that we will be able to arrange to get you all on the water as soon as we can.

Thank you all for your support during these difficult times.


If you have a query about our adventure voyages, our office team are always happy to hear from you.
