Brownes Boot Camp


Mud and Sea Boot Camp Training

Brownes Sea Boot Camp aims to set up a BRAND NEW & EXCLUSIVE Sea Camp on Southend On Sea mudflats!  We will be training on the mud to make it a tough, extreme workout for all abilities & ages!  It will be FUN, CHALLENGING, UNIQUE, DIFFERENT, EPIC, EXCITING WHILST RESPECTING THE LOCAL NATURE & WILDLIFE OUT AT SEA. 

We are fully licensed & insured by the local authority & MCA (Maritime and Coastguard Agency) to operate this kind of training/business.

Typical 4 hour Day:  We leave Leigh On Sea at High Water & head out to the Ray Gut to pick up our mooring & set up camp for the training session. We will then wait for the tide to go out while we have a briefing from Angus Browne (Skipper of the boat) about the session & emergency procedures. We will then drop off all the kit onto the mud when the tide goes out and transport members on our very own Inflatable Rib onto the mudflats to get ready for our Boot Camp session. After we have completed our mission, training on the mud, we will then head to Two Tree Island where there is water all the time to unload the kit/equipment before heading home for a warm shower and telling your family & friends all about what fun we had out at sea!


The trip is dependent on the weather and tides on the day, so we will have to review this a couple of days prior to the selected date. (subject to cancellation of the trip with 24-48 hours notice due to weather/tides)
