Welcome to East Anglian Sea School

East Anglian Sea School has set the standard for training excellence on the East Coast for over 40 years. Founded in 1973 as a small family business called East Anglian School of Sailing we have since grown into one of the foremost Royal Yachting Association (RYA) sea schools in the country with an excellent reputation built on the quality of the our training, facilities, crafts and superb homecooked catering on the yachts.

Over forty years later the school is owned by the second generation of the same family and has been around for as long as the Royal Yachting Association training scheme.


East Anglian Sea School is based at Suffolk Yacht Harbour, Levington set in the Suffolk countryside half way between Ipswich and Felixstowe International Port on the River Orwell. The sea school has excellent road and rail links with most parts of the UK and is well placed near to international airports and continental ferry terminals. 

We have 45 friendly, approachable, patient and knowledgeable instructors, qualified to the highest standards in sailing, motor cruising, power boating and dinghy sailing. Training afloat is run using a fleet of 'Strata' yachts, motorcruisers, powerboats and dinghies from Jeanneau, Beneteau, Nelson, Ribeye, Wayfarer and Hartley, all maintained to MCA standards.
A wide range of courses are on offer, catering for people new to boating right through to experts. Covering RYA courses from Start Yachting to Yachtmaster Ocean or Motor Helmsman's courses through to shorebased navigation courses and one day courses such as, VHF Radio and Diesel engine courses which are run all year round, at weekends as well as during the week.

One of the Sea School specialities is own boat tuition, where we put an experienced instructor on to a customer’s own boat (yachts, motorboats, sports boats, ribs and dinghies) and will teach to the customer spec. If your boat is not based locally, we can travel to you. This includes commercial boat training for the fishing, maritime and construction industries including wind farms support and safety boat cover, as well as anything from basic boat handling to race training for leisure boat owners. Another speciality is our MCA four day diesel engine course which is a great addition to the skills portfolio for any commercial yachtsman, sail or motor.
