Centre Profile & Facilities:

UKSA enjoys a waterfront location in Cowes on the sunny Isle of Wight and is the perfect location for residential and non-residential watersports and team building for students from 8 years upwards. Our programmes are centred on sailing, watersports, and teambuilding and designed to develop a range of skills.

We are proud to offer young people of all abilities activities where they can learn skills for life in an aspirational and safe environment. Our bespoke programmes are designed to build confidence and encourage teamwork using watersports and the great outdoors as a catalyst for positive outcomes. We offer unique all-inclusive packages with ferry travel, accommodation, food and drink, tuition and evening entertainment all included. We can accommodate groups of all sizes; small or large (up to 270 people).

The wider benefits of participation in watersports are widely recognised and include inspiration, enjoyment, teamwork, boosting self-confidence and self-reliance, as well as the making and sealing of friendships. Learn to sail, paddleboard, windsurf, kayak and more. Activities are tailored to your group's desires, age and ability.

The safety, well-being and enjoyment of those visiting UKSA are our number one priority. We are a home-from-home for children and young people each year and pride ourselves on our exemplary safety protocols that sit within a robust and fully compliant framework.

One leader goes free for every ten students. We offer complimentary teacher familiarisation weekends with no obligation to book – it’s an opportunity for you to look around our base and discuss what we can offer your school. Our Patron is HRH Princess Royal.

With the generous support of individuals and donors, we have some funding available for those children who do not have the financial support to join their classmates on a residential trip. Contact UKSA to find out more and leave no child behind.
