Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Now that government requirements have ended and personal responsibility is encouraged, we ask that if you, or anyone in your school/youth group, feels unwell then you/they do not join the vessel.

With this in mind we ask that participants take a lateral flow test prior to joining the vessel.

For those booked on a teenage week, DofE Gold Residential or Expedition, adult voyage or adult RYA course, in the event you are unable to join the voyage because of an adverse Covid-19 test, we will seek to re-book you on a like for like voyage or course at another time.

Teenage Week, DofE Gold Residential or Expedition participants
Under 18s – Permission to take a Lateral Flow Test
If, during the voyage, your child shows symptoms of illness that are suspected might indicate Covid, we would welcome parental/guardian permission to ask them to take a lateral flow test, subject to your child’s agreement at the time. We will be in touch during the week prior to the voyage to seek your instruction.

Your safety, and the safety of our staff, is our priority and we will be keeping our operating arrangements under constant review, based on the latest government advice, operational needs, and ongoing risk assessments.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to ask. Please visit our Contact page for ways to get in touch.
