Want to know if sailing is for you? You can’t find a better opportunity than this.

A sail taster day makes the perfect present for a special occasion; a birthday, anniversary, Christmas or maybe just a fun family day out, hiring the yacht exclusively with a skipper for up to four guests.

The exact itinerary will depend on weather conditions and tides on the day, but you will meet at our office at 09:30 where you will meet your skipper who is also a highly trained RYA instructor and receive a safety briefing. Then it is time to start your day sailing! You will be involved in helming, sail trimming and rope work, or if you prefer you can sit back and enjoy the ride (the day can be as 'hands on' as you wish). After a relaxing, fun day on the water you will return to Levington Marina at approximately 16:30.

You can cater for lunch yourself, or we can arrange this for you at an additional cost or you may prefer to sail to a waterside restaurant, we have some good recommendation along the River Orwell or grab some fish & chips from Harwich. We are happy to discuss options with you.
