In light of COVID-19, please make sure you check with your travel and accommodation providers before travelling.


The Norfolk Broads School of Sailing offers RYA sailing courses, based on the Norfolk Broads in the UK. The Sailing School provides a wide range of both RYA approved and other residential sailing courses in cabin cruising yachts.

Yachts are from the fleet of Eastwood Whelpton, where traditional family sailing holidays have been based for more than 50 years. The courses are run from Upton Yacht Station.

All our courses are extensively practical and you will cruise along the rivers and Broads, meeting your instructor each morning at a different place. Our instructors have formal RYA qualifications as well as many years of Broads sailing experience and they can tell you all about the history of sailing on the Broads, giving guidance on the best places to visit and talking about the wildlife. Most courses are run at a relaxed pace, allowing plenty of time for free sailing and enjoying the Broads experience. Successful candidates will receive the appropriate RYA (Royal Yachting Association) certificates.

Charter costs are in addition to the course fees and vary according to the yacht selected and the time in the season.
