Destination Lowestoft, Suffolk, UK

Leaving the Heritage Quay in Lowestoft you will sail with EXCELSIOR for 6 nights before finishing and disembarking back in Lowestoft

Join EXCELSIOR, one of Lowestoft’s last remaining Smacks still in service, on an east coast adventure venturing east across the North Sea to Holland

With the challenge of entering straight into a full ships watch system you will sail south or East, working with the wind and tide making your way across the North Sea exploring old shipping routes as you go.

With the skills our crew hold in both coaching and sailing training, no matter the background of those who sail with us, they will still gain an experience to cherish. We also offer the opportunity to take part in the RYA Start Yachting Scheme, which challenges individuals on their nautical skills and abilities, including navigation and chart work, helming (steering) and rope work, allowing you to come away with a good understanding of the basics of life at sea and an RYA Competent Crew certificate.
