Anglian Sea School has set the standard for training excellence on the East Coast
for 40 years. We are based on the East Coast of the UK at Suffolk Yacht Harbour,
Levington, on the River Orwell, half way between Ipswich and Felixstowe. Founded
in 1973, as a small family business then called East Anglian School of Sailing,
it has grown into one of the foremost Royal Yachting Association (RYA) sea schools
in the country. Still owned by the
second generation of the same family, the school has been around for as long as
the RYA training scheme. As well as being an RYA training centre we are recognised by the Marine Coastguard Agency (MCA) and the International Sailing Association Federation (ISAF) and Sea Fish.
There are good road and rail links to Levington and the
marina is well signposted from the main A12/A14 routes.
The school has an excellent reputation built
on the quality of training, shore-side facilities, yachts and powerboats and last
but not least, catering afloat. We have already trained more
than 1700 adults throughout this year.
We have 45 friendly,
approachable, patient and knowledgeable instructors, qualified to the highest standards
in sailing, motor cruising, power boating and dinghy sailing. Training afloat
is run using a fleet of 'Strata' yachts, motorcruisers, powerboats and dinghies
from Jeanneau, Haines, Ribeye, Wayfarer and Laser, all maintained to MCA standards.
wide range of courses are on offer both in the UK at Levington and at Marmaris in Turkey, catering for people new to boating right through to experts. From Start
Yachting or Helmsman's courses, Competent Crew, Day Skipper through to Coastal
Skipper and on to Yachtmaster and Yachtmaster Ocean, courses are run all year
round, at weekends as well as during the week.
