The trip takes place on the weekend of 21/22 June. No previous sailing experience necessary.

You can board Centaur on the Friday evening at Maldon Quay and enjoy the spectacle of the numerous barges that will be there waiting for the Match on Saturday.

We will head off on the Saturday morning tide and be racing throughout the day, returning to Maldon quay for the prize-giving and meal ashore on Saturday evening.

On Sunday she’ll be taking the morning tide back down the RiverBlackwater and along the Essex Coast past Clacton and Walton and the busy Ports of Felixstowe and Harwich. Then up the picturesque River Orwell to moor alongside the old Custom House at Ipswich Dock.

The cost of the trip, including meals, on Saturday and Sunday is just £140 per person.

We may be able to assist you with transport back to Maldon from Ipswich.
