'back at sea' is the definition.
'go astern' can be an answer for 'back' (thesaurus). I am not sure about the 'at sea' bit.

'back at sea' is the wordplay.
'back' becomes 'stern' (stern means the back of a boat).
'at' says to put letters next to each other (I've seen this in other clues).
'sea' becomes 'goa' (I can't explain this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'stern' after 'goa' is 'GO ASTERN'.
