Navigate your way to nautical success with Heron Sailing

Ramsgate, Kent

Take to the helm from England’s only Royal Harbour and master the art of sailing.

Imagine it: the taste of salt spray, a surging sea and a stunning shore. Based in Ramsgate, a historic port awash with continental charm, Heron Sailing is perfectly placed for maritime adventures. Kent’s iconic coast lies all around, France is within five hours’ sail, central London makes for an exciting weekend cruise or the run to Belgium or Holland takes just a few days more.

Heron Sailing is a Royal Yachting Association accredited training centre, so you’ll get excellent tuition on a wealth of courses and mile building cruises. Alternatively charter your own 38 ft yacht, complete with qualified skipper, and let someone else steer your cross-channel hop.
