T/S Prolific

The prefix ’Training Ship’ or ’T/S’ followed by the ship’s proper name, is used on ships that train sailors. Prolific means productive or plentiful. This represents the positive outcomes that a sail training experience has for the individual and in turn their communities.

 

T/S Prolific was built in 2005 as homage to the old cutters that sailed the seas the 1800’s. Prolific has a classic design, but is a modern construction. This means that above the waterline the shape of the hull and the woodwork is classical, but the construction of the hull and rigging, as well as all technical equipment is modern. She is therefore an efficient sailing vessel with ribbed sails that are Bermuda Ketch rigged (two masts where the aft one is smaller, and with triangular-looking sails). Prolific is 26 meters long and about six and a half meters wide, and the total sail area is 527 m2. She has 26 berths and in the lounge there is a good social and learning space with a long wooden table, projector, screen, whiteboard, and a sound system with a mixer.

 

Prolific Sail Training

Prolific is a training ship in the broad sense, and offers people experiential learning for life. Prolific Sail Training empowers the individual and strengthens their faith in both capacity and ability to cope with various challenges.

 

Prolific Sail Training is about experiencing proficiency in theoretical, practical and social situations. Trainees will experience the joy and a sense of community by mastering challenges together. The ship functions as a small community where the learning environment is based on confidence, warmth and care from the regular crew and other trainees. Each one will be able to test their leadership skills and will be given responsibilities that match their abilities.

 

Throughout the year Prolific Sail Training focus on youth-at-risk aged between 15 and 25. Many have backgrounds that include social exclusion, learning difficulties and unemployment. Prolific Sail Training is based on an understanding that everybody is gifted with a set of skills, but instead of giving them a list of rights through the welfare system, we give them different development opportunities. When sailing with Prolific you are supporting the non-profit work that we are committed to.
