Dive in and find out more

32 years ago, UKSA was a centre offering dinghy courses to 1,500 children a year. Now we are the UK’s leading maritime and watersports training centre and proudly transform the lives of an increasing number of young people, year on year.

Complementary Leader previews

Providing new experiences, opportunities and challenges to young people through watersports and sailing is life-changing on many levels.

We host regular preview weekends at UKSA so that you can experience everything we have to offer, first-hand. A visit will provide the perfect opportunity for you to meet our team, try the activities we offer, sample our food and accommodation and see other school or group visits in action.

The return ferry, accommodation, food and activities are complementary and obligation-free.
