Trinity House

Trinity House was set up to oversee the safety of shipping and the well-being of seafarers. Through the Superyacht Cadetship Bursary, Trinity House supports the training of young people at UKSA who do not have the financial means to afford the training programme, helping them to access careers in the yachting industry. 

The Seafarers' Charity

The Seafarers’ Charity

The Seafarers’ Charity offers financial support in the training of future leaders of large commercial yachts who would otherwise not be able to access it. The Seafarers’ Charity  supports selected Cadetship places at UKSA, providing significant funding to successful individuals and helping them into maritime careers.


Edmiston, one of the world’s leading yachting companies, and UKSA have launched The Edmiston Foundation to provide young people, especially those in the most underrepresented and disadvantaged groups, with the opportunity to forge a career within the maritime industry and thereby working to address the lack of diversity within the Superyacht industry. 

The TK Foundation

The TK Foundation is a private independent foundation organized in the Bahamas in 2002. The Foundation is named for J. Torben Karlshoej, “T.K.”, who grew up on a farm in Denmark and later founded the Teekay Shipping Company, now Teekay Corporation. The TK Foundation’s mission is to fulfill the legacy of J. Torben Karlshoej by enabling disadvantaged youth to succeed and promoting maritime education and safety.
