The MVS is a recognised national maritime training organisation that changes lives. A non-profit organisation and a UK registered charity with more than 25 units around the country, it provides training to nationally and internationally recognised standards, serving local communities especially in times of need or emergency and taking part in resilience exercises ashore and afloat.

The MVS educates members in all aspects of maritime and communication skills and knowledge, promotes the preservation of life and property within the maritime environment, helps local organisations and events with skilled support, stimulates interest in maritime affairs and excites members to achieve through training and helping their local community.

Weekly training sessions in navigation and seamanship take place locally on Tuesday from 1930hrs. They are held in our lecture room and complemented by trips of varying length on our national training vessel, East Sussex 1, which is based in Sovereign Harbour.
