UKSA 1987-2017

30 years of excellence

In 2017 we are celebrating our 30th anniversary of delivering life-changing opportunities thanks to the power of the sea. We will be celebrating in style throughout the year, so watch this space!

Continuing the legacy of Noel and Sylvia Lister

In 1987 our inspirational founder Noel Lister, along with his wife Sylvia, pledged £4 million to establish UKSA with the aim of introducing as many people as possible to the to the inspiration and challenge of sailing.

Every year we run a number of fundraising campaigns to continue the Listers’ legacy and enable as many people as possible to access to what UKSA has to offer.

Test the Water

Thanks to a donation from WightAid we will be running our Test the Water programme in 2017 – enabling every Year 6 Isle of Wight student to enjoy a half-day watersports session with us. The sessions give youngsters the chance to try new activities whilst building confidence and self-esteem.

All campaigns are in addition to our existing funding opportunities:
