Tide, Wind and Time


Driven by the moon and sun.

High tide occurs every 12 hours

The time of High Water is approximately an hour later every 24 hours.

Plan on sailing for 4hrs before and after high tide.


Southerly winds provide the most enjoyable and safest sailing.

Northerly winds sweep across the North Sea, allowing for the waves and swell to build.

We can't control the wind, only our direction, so we may have to use the engine!


A 3-5 hr sail use one tide.

An 8 hour sail involves using one tide to reach a location. We then walk off the marsh and drive you back to Wells!

A 10 to 12 hour charter involves sailing from tide to tide and back to wells with some time adventuring on land or the sand

Sea or Salt Marsh?

A sea sail involves going to sea, so it can be more exciting, but those that suffer from seasickness may have to be wary.

The protected salt marsh offers very calm sailing, so there are no waves and you can often touch the bottom of the creeks!

Our provisions

All of our provisions are sustainably sourced from within 28 miles of our HQ.

Our coffee is delivered under sail from Columbia through New Dawn Traders

Breakfast is usually bacon and eggs, sourdough and chutney with freshly made tea and coffee. A vegetarian option includes halloumi cheese, tomatoes and avacardo.

Lunch and supper typically consist of homemade soup, sourdough, a selection of Norfolk cheeses, fresh tomatoes, fish or a pate, chutney and cake of the day.
