Background information on
UKSA is the world’s leading maritime youth charity, delivering a wide range of leisure, further education, and professional career courses in watersports and yachting for over 35 years. Training is delivered from our purpose built, all-inclusive 4-acre waterfront campus in Cowes, on the Isle of Wight.
As a youth maritime charity, we can offer that something extra. Our career students benefit from mentoring, access to our careers network, realistic careers advice, and help with CVs. We have a fantastic fleet, an all-inclusive waterfront campus, inspirational instructors, and great facilities. Training at UKSA gives you excellent value for money with all food and accommodation included (both on board our yachts and on-site).
With the generous support of individuals and donors, we often have funding opportunities available for many of our students.
We will have a course to suit you, whether you are an entry-level novice or a professional looking to top up your training and qualifications.
