Communication and Decision Making - Skills for LifeAdventures at sea

Every year, UKSA introduces 10,000 young people of all ages and abilities to the thrills of sailing and adventures.

What level is our dinghy sailing aimed at?

Our sessions are designed for all levels, from beginners to experienced sailors, using chosen craft to suit the level of capability. Our dinghy fleet covers a range of craft including smaller, single-handed RS Qubas and Zests:

The RS Quaba is a suitable dinghy for introducing newcomers to the sport of sailing but is also a good boat to race. The cockpit is spacious but is also light enough to be handled by children.

The RS Zest was developed with the Sea Cadets and is a double-handed training boat ever. It’s won praise for its simple and unique training features that were developed especially for a training environment.

With its reliance on nature and the elements, sailing is all about adventure, exploration, teamwork and fun.
