Tall ship races and regattas


Prolific was built in 2005, as a tribute to the herring-fishing vessels in operation along the Norwegian coast during the 19th century. The ship is a hybrid of historic design and modern-day construction. Most recently, she has been used for sail training with young people in Norway. Ocean Youth Trust South purchased Prolific in 2015 to replace their previous vessel John Laing.
