Silver: £50 per annum benefits include; 10% off all charters and trips etc., boat maintenance for sailing days.
Gold: £100 per annum benefits include; 20% off all charters trips etc., and all the above plus first offer of berths on discounted trips and regattas etc. training on launch for unsupervised charters, no minimum charter fee.
Our East Coast base is in Pinmill on the Orwell.
The boats are ashore there in the winter and on moorings during the season. We bring them into the marina at Woolverstone for handovers. It's not far from Harwich Harbour from where you can sail north to explore the Deben, Ore and Alde, or go south to the Blackwater, Crouch, Thames and the Medway.
If you don't want to leave the river
you can stay on the Orwell up to Ipswich or down to Harwich Harbur and the Stour to Wrabness and Mistley.
