Weekends Away

“Escape your World, Relax in Ours”

Our barge “Reminder” offers you the chance to cruise back in time to an unhurried world governed by wind and tides.  Leave life ashore as you explore the “secret waters” of the East Coast, from gliding up the quietest creek to invigorating sailing along the coast. Experience the thrill of sailing under our 100’ mast and huge brown sails.  Hep hoist the sails and take the wheel, or relax on deck while our experienced crew do the hard work !

On a typical two day cruise from Maldon you sail past Osea Island, Tollesbury Creek, St Peters Chapel at Bradwell, Mersea Island and into the River Colne for a night anchorage with an optional shore visit to East Mersea or Wivenhoe before finding a night anchorage.  Longer trips mean you can explore further afield and head up towards Harwich Harbour and the beautiful rivers Stour and Orwell, or maybe sail south and into the rivers Crouch and Roach.

Reminder can sail with 12 guests and offers 6 cabins - two doubles, two twins and two triples.  Her spacious saloon has plenty of comfy seating, a log burner, large dining table and open plan galley for sociable food preparation.  She has two toilets, both with washbasins and one with a shower.

Food isn't included but we do have some nice menu suggestions for you, complete with shopping lists and may be able to helpy you find a cook if you prefer this option.  You'll need to feed and water the two sailing crew (copious amounts of tea !).
