Group trips for everyone

A unique location

Here at UKSA we are proud of our 3.5 acre waterfront campus on the beautiful Isle of Wight. We are based in the world-famous sailing town of Cowes, home to an eight-day regatta which attracts 100,000 spectators each year. UKSA’s campus faces the navigable River Medina which flows past on its way to the Solent. The Island itself is a historical, geographical and geological feast, with a mild climate and sumptuous scenery. From historical houses, clean beaches and dazzling night skies to hidden coves only accessible by kayak, we really do have it all.

Bespoke flexible options tailored to your needs

UKSA caters for all types of groups, from scouts and sea cadets to singing groups and sports clubs. We also welcome adult groups such as walking and cycling clubs. Whether you decide to use us as a base from which to explore the Island, enjoy a fully residential all-inclusive stay or visit us for a day trip, your group will be offered a variety of options.

  • Tailor and build your own visit for as many nights that you like.
  • Bed and breakfast is per person, per night.
  • All food is freshly prepared on site
  • As a bonus, we offer  one place FREE of charge for every 10 participants in your group.

Multi-activity days – sample a range of activities 

Our multi-activity days are designed to allow people to sample a wide range of watersports. Aside from the sheer exhilaration, these activities can help build soft skills via teamwork, communication and negotiation.

Alternatively, visits can be tailored to work towards RYA and BCU qualifications.
