About Us                          

Sailing North East is a professionally run yacht sailing organisation and which specialises in taking people from all backgrounds and ages to sea, where they can experience the magic of sail. We operate a large well equipped ocean going yacht from Hartlepool Marina, and cruise extensively around the British Isles, across the North Sea and beyond.

Our main aim is to give people the opportunity to sail a big yacht offshore, be it for pure enjoyment, sail training or to aid in gaining recognised qualifications.   We can offer an exciting 8 day voyage sailing over to and back from the fantastic city of Amsterdam  or if you prefer, a little less demanding weekend to and from Whitby,   And of course the prestigious Tall Ships Races (follow tab above for Tall Ships Races)

Sail Training We are a recognised RYA approved Sea School and can offer clients Competent Crew, Watch Leader, ICC and Day Skipper courses issuing certification after successful completion of the courses.   We can also teach and certify Day Skipper and Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster offshore RYA Theory courses.   Please see RYA courses  for further inforrmation.

All our yacht is skippered by highly experienced commercial yachtmaster, whose primary concern is your safety and enjoyment. Whilst sailing with us you will have ample opportunity to be involved in the running of the vessel. You will become crew not cargo! Be it hoisting sails, using GPS/VHF/MF radios, devising complex passage plans and even preparing a meal for other crew members in sometimes challenging conditions.  You will gain an understanding of satellite navigation systems, safety and collision regulations and the weather first hand.

The challenge is to do something different.  Set the sails, switch off the engine, feel 17 tons of boat bite the wind, heel over and cut through the waves.  No noise except wind, sail and water.  Be part of a team to pilot your yacht to a pre-determined port or anchorage. 

An unforgettable test of human skill, judgement, teamwork and communication against the elements.



Black Diamond of Durham is a 10 berth 45 foot Bowman Corsair Ocean Racer fitted out with sail training in mind.  She is well known in the sailing world around the North East region for various reasons, mainly due to her stunning appearance and unquestionable performance on the water.  Black Diamond will take you anywhere in the world.
