In addition to Sea-Change Sailing Trust's established work aboard a Thames sailing barge we offer the opportunity at weekends for small groups of up to 4 or individuals to turn their hand to traditional gaff rig sailing aboard an engineless Colchester fishing smack, Sallie CK224 built in 1907 by Aldous of Brightlingsea.

In the hands of highly experienced and qualified crew you will have the opportunity to sail on the Essex rivers and creeks in the manner of the fishermen in the days of sail, whilst learning traditional marlin spike seamanship. No previous sailing experience is required.
