Spring & Summer Sailing

During the spring and summer we maximise the opportunity to enjoy the stunning rivers & east coast during the warmer, longer days with an action packed schedule of afternoon and day sails.

Situated in Ipswich, Suffolk on the beautiful River Orwell. Our sailing yachts and power vessels are fully equipped to provide you with everything needed to make your event truly unique.

Cruise the Rivers Orwell and Stour or sail off the local coast, food (Lunch and/or cream tea depending on the option taken) can either be taken ‘on the go’ or we can drop anchor in a sheltered spot for a tasty treat on board. Relax and take in the beautiful sights during the cruise or for the more energetic let your skipper show you the ropes, set and trim the sails, navigate using charts & modern electronics and take the helm.
