Autumn – Winter 2016

During the autumn and winter we offer a flexible schedule that responds to the prevailing weather conditions. We offer slightly shorter leisure sails to ensure our guests get the most of their time on the water.

Choose from action packed Soup & Sail or Winter warm-up packages designed to give the opportunity for prospective RYA course particants  to gain some additional experience on the water. Alternatively for those looking for a leisurely sailing experience our Sunday Sail & Roast package is a popular choice with a 3 hour morning sail followed by a two course roast to satisfy a fresh air induced appetite.

If you are looking to extend your sailing experience, our Autumn/Winter Sail & Stay package with The Salthouse Harbour Hotel is great way to ‘make a weekend’ of your sail. We also work with a number of other top hotels in Suffolk and can create a bespoke package to suit your needs so please contact us to discuss your requirements further.

To book any of these packages, call 01394 421209 or contact us via our contact form.
