Heritage Sailing Experiences

Our Heritage Sailing Experience Days are a great way to get a taste of life onboard one of the nation’s most historic ships. Setting out from Lowestoft or Ipswich you’ll get hands-on and join in with raising the sails, hoisting out the bowsprit and taking the tiller with our experienced crew guiding you. If sailing isn’t your thing then take a seat and enjoy the sights and sounds of this historic vessel.

Tea, coffee and squash are provided throughout the day.

Sailing from Ipswich: You’ll enjoy a day on the river, getting to grips with sailing Excelsior whilst surrounded by beautiful landscape before heading out past Felixstowe for a quick burst at sea.

Sailing from Lowestoft: Leaving from the Heritage Quay by South Pier, you’ll head straight out to sea. On windy days this makes for an exciting sail for both novices and experienced sailors alike!
