Sailing from the Essex port of Fambridge to ports on the East Coast of England and sometimes to Holland and France, we have the ideal location for a sailing school with safe sheltered waters in the river Crouch plus some of the UK’s most interesting and challenging coastal sailing. Prevailing offshore winds keep the sea state flat and we even have the UK’s lowest rain fall.  All our instructors are fully RYA approved instructors.  Des also offers private own boat tuition and a Yacht delivery where he can safely deliver boats from all over the world.  Call for further details.
