Donate to one of our Fundraising Campaigns

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 challenges of sailing.

Our fundraising campaigns aim to continue the Listers’ legacy and enable as many people as possible to access to what UKSA has to offer.

Leave No Child Behind – There are parents and schools from deprived inner city and rural areas who cannot afford to send their children on outdoor educational activities such as at UKSA. The result is these children are falling behind their classmates academically.

Building Better Futures – UKSA has embarked on an ambitious programme to upgrade and renew our accommodation and facilities. It is critical work and will enable us to welcome more young people of all backgrounds. To find out more and how you can help click here.

Test The Water – This special programme is funded entirely by individual and company donations. It gives every Year 6 child on the Isle of Wight the opportunity to participate in a half-day sailing, developing confidence and important life skills. Running since 2014, UKSA has helped nearly 5,000 young people to get out on the water. Our target in 2019 year is 1,330 children and to do this we need to raise £40,000
