Nottage Maritime Institute

Courses for Yachtsmen and people interested boating.

See our website for further information.

The Nottage Maritime Institute is a Registered Charity, established in 1896, specialising in teaching not only RYA Shorebased Courses but several of our own unique courses mostly with a nautical flavour.

The Nottage is a local maritime museum with a fine collection of paintings, photographs and models all with local connections.  The Nottage opens to the public on Sunday afternoons from May – September 2.00 – 5.00 pm. (or by appointment during the week) when a special exhibition is also arranged.

The Nottage is home to The Friends of the Nottage, a group of supporters who may use the Nottage facilities and attend 6 lectures on a variety of subjects during the winter months for a modest subscription.(

The Nottage is also home to the Wivenhoe Film Club who meet during the winter months showing a wide programme range of old and new films.
