Outdoor learning in a unique setting

We have been delivering inspirational programmes for over 30 years and we continue to lead the field in outdoor learning experiences, using watersports and sailing as a catalyst for positive change.

Our bespoke experiences bring groups back year after year and we are proud to work with each group to support their unique requirements and learning outcomes. We have an exemplary safety record and work with parents, carers, teachers and group leaders to support visitors to try new, challenging and inspiring activities at our waterfront base on the beautiful Isle of Wight.



The quality of instruction from UKSA’s Mark and Leon could not have been better. In a week of low winds, they made the activity fun and enjoyable while we occasionally had to drift. The activities exceeded our expectations and the fleet and equipment were high quality and well-maintained. All in all, our trip was a fantastic opportunity and the scouts have requested more sailing with the UKSA instructors next year
