Stay and sail along Suffolk’s Heritage Coast on a sailing course

Ipswich, Suffolk

Enjoy the gentle pace of Suffolk’s rivers and coast, then bed down in a boutique hotel at night, with Viking Mariners’ stay and sail packages.

Viking Mariners Sea School, based on Ipswich’s stylish waterfront, offer a full range of practical Royal Yacht Association sailing courses for all levels of experience. Learn to sail with a qualified skipper on a boating holiday this spring, followed by a relaxing overnight stay at one of Suffolk’s finest hotels.

All courses take place on board the school’s luxury 37-ft training yacht. Moored at Suffolk Yacht Harbour in Levington, it’s conveniently located with access to England’s east coast and the Rivers Orwell and Stour.

Sit back and relax on your activity holiday as the serene Orwell Valley drifts by, getting to recognise the rich diversity of birds that wade amongst its silvery waters, including the coveted avocet. Or take to the helm to enjoy this Area of Outstanding Beauty, followed by a night at your choice of three sumptuous 4-star hotels, Salthouse Harbour Hotel, Milsoms Kesgrave Hall or Seckford Hall.
