Putting you at the helm of your health...quite literally.

Your day:


Wake your body up with an invigorating early morning pilates session from our studio for the day. With fantastic panoramic views of the marina and river setting the scene for the rest of your day.  


After a light and refreshing breakfast you will receive a briefing from the skipper before heading out for a full day of fun and excitement on the water.


The Boat

Stepping aboard 40-Love you will notice the ropes - there are many - the space and the quality of this yacht. She is the flagship of East Anglian Sea School and is a beautiful exhilarating boat to sail.

Once out of the marina you will take the helm and as a team cruise the picturesque River Orwell home to the  famous Pin Mill and Felixstowe docks. 

The wildlife-rich estuary of the River Orwell forms part of the Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 

While on the water you will:

  • take the helm

  • learn how to trim the sheets

  • experience the feel and power of the boat under sail

  • appreciate the tide, wind and constant movement aboard.


All this under guidance and tuition of East Anglian Sea School.

For lunch we will anchor off the shores of the river and enjoy a hearty home produced picnic before sailing back to the marina. Once the sails are stowed you will then finish the day with a calming stretch and breathing session allowing you to reflect on the experience youve just had.

Our aim is to load your senses, for you feel the constant movement of the boat, appreciate the sensation of the wind,  test your body control and wake up muscles you didnt think you had!

Health is so much more than just the physical. We need to let go of our daily routine and test our bodies in new environments.
