How might Covid-19 (Coronavirus) affect my voyage with MST?

Covid-19 and 2021 bookings

Following the publication of the government's roadmap to recovery, we have now resumed all residential sail training voyages, expeditions and RYA courses. We are taking bookings on all voyages and courses. 

In light of the continued changes to restrictions and infection levels around the country, we will keep this decision under constant review and any changes will be communicated to participants in good time. We will only run voyages where we are happy that any risk from Covid-19 can be managed, and where we believe that it is safe and appropriate for us to do so. 

If you would like to know more before making your booking, please contact the office on 01243 908026

Flexible Dates 

If after booking you discover that you cannot sail with us for Covid-related reasons, you can move your booking to alternative dates at no charge up to and including the day of the voyage. This includes if exam or school arrangements change, the imposition of local restrictions and lockdowns or if you are required to self-isolate. 

Money Back Guarantee

If a voyage or course is cancelled due to Covid, all participants are entitled to a full refund. 

Rapid Testing

All participants on our voyages will be asked to complete a lateral flow test before joining the boat, and may be asked to complete further tests during their time onboard, depending on voyage length. 

More details on Covid testing and other protocols for a safe voyage will be circulated to voyage participants as appropriate before joining.


If you have any concerns or would like to know more, please don't hesitate to contact us.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff in the NHS and other organisations who are working so hard to combat this disease. Our prayers are with all those affected around the world.


There will be lots of people across the country who are trapped in their homes at this time because they are either sick, vulnerable or elderly. We urge you to check in with your neighbours and those in your community, and offer any practical, emotional or spiritual support you can, whilst continuing to protect yourself against the virus.
