Born out of the award winning Sail4Macmillan Cruise, which has raised over £40k for Macmillan Cancer Support, this is an amazing opportunity to join a trip around the union.
Unlike many ocean trips the crew, guided by their professional skipper, will have full involvement in sailing their Sigma 38. They will see the ever-changing coastline, the stunning Cape Wrath, the beautiful west coast of Ireland, the challenging Irish Sea, dolphins of the Bristol Channel and the Seven Sisters.
The trip departs St Katharine Docks and Tower Bridge with the first stop a quiet anchorage off the Kent coast and the leg ending at Inverness. Priced at £1950 per person per leg, for ten days of exhilarating cruising, this really is an opportunity like no other.
In summer 2023, Premier Sailing is embarking on a voyage around the UK and the Emerald Isle, taking in all the sights and sounds of the UK, Ireland, as well as the famous Irish hospitality!
Just like our now established Round Britain cruise, this trip is split into a series of eight one-week legs, so you can join us for one, two, or even all eight. As with all of our cruises, no sailing experience is necessary to join us, as each leg is skippered by a fully qualified Yachtmaster instructor and, as with all Premier Sailing trips and courses, each leg is fully catered so there is no extra cost on board (unless you wish to invest in a drop of the ‘black stuff’ when ashore).
There are many reasons for joining us. Maybe you wish to get a taste of sailing on open water, or handling a larger vessel? Or you may simply wish to enjoy the adventure and stunning scenery that await. With night sails and open-water crossings, our cruises also serve as fantastic mile-building voyages for those working towards a Yachtmaster qualification, or simply need a refresher.
This is an opportunity not to be missed, so if you want to take part we would love for you to join us!
If you’re looking for a sailing holiday as a family or group of friends then we can help. The East Coast of England provides some of the best sailing available in the UK, coupled with the kindest that England can offer in the way of weather.
Our cruising area is particularly beautiful with saltmarsh and seal colonies to explore, the rolling hills of the rivers Stour and Orwell plus the challenge of the River Deben. There is lots to see and with prices starting at just £45 per person per day for a week’s sailing holiday in August, what could be better?
We have two types of vessel available for both bareboat and skippered charter. For smaller groups we have the Beneteau 35 and, for larger groups, we have the well respected Sigma 38 cruiser racer.
Located in the picturesque and renowned sailing centre of Burnham on Crouch, we are less than an hour from London’s Liverpool Street Station – there are no travel issues of getting to airports, queuing for passport control, transfers and the like which may be experienced for sailing holidays abroad. You can drive and park without cost in the marina car park and, if coming by train, we will collect you. Your comfortable vessel will be waiting for you with a full fuel tank and basic provisions (unless you give us a shopping list and then Sainsbury will deliver your order to the boat)! All the boats have three sleeping cabins and are coded for 6 or 9 people. Fully equipped for cruising and exceeding the standards normally associated with a charter vessel, these yachts can also take you across the Channel to France or Holland.

Trips to Dunkerque - Amsterdam - Woodbridge - Boulogne - Dieppe - London and much more!
Whether you are looking for an adventurous Channel crossing to the Netherlands or France, or a more restrained voyage to the historic harbours of Kent or the vivacious towns of Essex and Suffolk, we offer a range of trips to suit every taste. If you want the relaxation of quiet anchorages and the company of seals, porpoises and avocet, then join us in exploring the wonderful Suffolk and Essex coastlines. Fresh seafood can still be bought on the quaysides at West Mersea or Southwold – always a delight!
Sailing with Premier gives you the flexibility to enjoy exciting sea and river passages, quiet anchorages and lively ports in a relaxed and friendly way.

Following the overwhelming success of our previous six trips, which raised over £37,000 for Macmillan and was enjoyed by many shipmates, we will once again in 2023 take to the seas around our coastline for the trip of a lifetime.
Most of us will come into contact with cancer at some time in our lives and Macmillan, as many of us know, are there to help and support both the patient and their family. It is our personal experience of the superb care and support provided by Macmillan that has lead us to run this trip. Our yachts will visit many marinas and most, including Royal Quays, Rhu, Bangor and Whitehills, will donate the mooring fees to Macmillan. If you wish to support our crews on their voyage, and help Macmillan Cancer Support continue their vital work with those affected by cancer, please follow this link to our justgiving page:
