Sea School

Viking Mariners has developed a strong team of trainers in leadership, management and team building and are pleased to now offer a programme of courses and learning to deliver first class training and qualifications through our RYA recognised training centre operating on the east coast of the UK and from Alicante in Spain.

We offer RYA theory courses and practical training to both new or existing corporate and private clients wishing to seamlessly progress from leisure to RYA qualifications whilst experiencing the Viking Mariners approach to personal development.

Viking Mariners Sea School in the UK is located in Ipswich on the East Coast and led by Paul Foddy, our highly experienced chief instructor.  Our location is ideal for those based in East Anglia (Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Norfolk) as well as London and the Midlands with excellent road and rail links.

We offer the full range of RYA Yacht Sailing Courses from Start Yachting, a 2 day introduction to sailing to YachtMaster. We also run our own training & familiarisation days on both monohull and catamaran vessels.

One of the great joys of sailing is being able to make a safe passage from your home port to another as a visitor. We teach the RYA Day Skipper and short courses (VHF & first aid) ashore from our base in Ipswich.

We can offer both 3 and 5 day mileage building trips in both the UK and Spain. These cover between 200 and 400 nautical miles with a mixture of night and day sailing and practical navigation and seamanship exercises.
