Sailing Experiences

Each area of the UK’s coastline claims to be the nations best, but few can be greater than the East Coast, with it’s winding rivers and creeks, salt marsh and shoals.

What better way to explore the South East Coastline, than by undertaking a sailing charter in a craft developed over centuries to be perfectly adapted to these waters?

Whether it be a 1 hour, Half Day or Full Day Excursion, the skipper and crew will ensure that the maximum time possible is spent under sail and that you can be as involved as you like when it comes to setting sails and steering the ship. Guests can enjoy full facilities on board, including a licenced bar with hot and cold refreshments available.

Fancy taking part in one of the worlds oldest sailing competitions? Then step aboard for one of the historic barge matches and experience the thrill of a sailing barge sailing in close quarters with up to 15 other barges.

We can currently accommodate up to 12 passengers on our own sailing barge, Edith May, and for larger parties, can charter multiple barges. Please get in touch if you would like further information on this option.

COVID – 19 update – We have taken the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 sailing schedule. All bookings should have received an email update with details of refunds. Details of our 2021 sailing season will be released soon. Please contact us if you would like to know more information.
