Further down this page is the 2019 voyage programme, with dates and details of start and finish ports.

It is still possible to alter some of the dates, ports and durations to suit our clients - please email to discuss your requirements.

Please note that we are hoping to run some voyages in Brittany in summer 2019, with possible start and finish ports which could include places like Brest, Lorient, La Rochelle or St Malo. This part of the programme depends very much on where clients are prepared to travel and whether we can book berths in the chosen ports. So at the moment this part of the programme is very much open for discussion and anyone interested should email webmaster1@oytsouth. If there isn't sufficient interest for us to be able to run so many Brittany voyages, we can still look at UK alternatives, so anyone wanting a UK voyage at this time should get in touch!

The programme does not tell you where a voyage is likely to go between start and finish ports. This is very dependent on the weather, but also on the young people in the crew. Some want to do long-distance adventures and are keen to sail all night in difficult conditions, others want a gentler introduction to sailing. Some groups have passports, others don't; some crews are fit and confident, others include young people with special needs. The decision about where to go therefore depends on you - we don't decide in advance.

Where voyages are marked "enquiry" on the programme, it means that someone has made an intial bid for a full-boat booking but nothing has been confirmed and no deposit has yet been paid, so if you really want that voyage - or a change to the programme that might require an alteration to that voyage - please ask. We will then go back to the original client and see if they want to confirm - if not, you may be able to book the voyage. "Reserved" means a deposit has been paid and we are just waiting for the full fee - it is harder, though not always impossible, to amend a reserved voyage.

Any voyage with "12+" in the "berths available" column is still open for a full-boat group booking. The normal number of places available to book on a voyage is 12, but the availability column says "12+" because we can go up to 15 people in certain circumstances. This may be fairly straightforward for a mainstream group but would require careful consideration if the voyage involves young people needing more support.

A number smaller than 12 in the availability column mean it is a mixed voyage open to individual bookings, and one or more places have already been filled. You might like to discuss this with us as we try to fit people on appropriate voyages and we may be able to give you information about other people who have booked on that voyage - we wouldn't want to book a 12-year old on a week where everyone else is 18 or over, for example..

Voyage start and finish times may vary, so do confirm these with the office, but in general, UK-based voyages will start at 2pm on the first day and end at 12 noon on the last day, except for weekends which normally run from 8pm Friday to 5pm Sunday, and voyages at the start of half-term which may begin at 8pm on the Friday to make the most of the time available. With overseas voyages we aim to be flexible and will discuss start and finish times with clients with the aim of fitting in with flights, ferries etc.

Contact the office to make a booking.

* Individual bookings - this means we are happy to include two or three people who know each other, but essentially this is an ideal voyage for people who are not coming as part of an organised group and are happy to sail with new people and hopefully make friends!

** ASTO Small Ships race

*** The duration of this voyage can be set to suit a client. It will start on Monday 28th October (half-term in Hampshire but not in all local authorities) and we could run a Mon-Fri voyage, Mon-Sat or even Mon-Sun depending on what clients would like - please ask.
