We’re a youth charity offering transformational opportunities

At UKSA, we’re focused on youth development, schools and groups, and professional training. In other words, we give people transformational opportunities for a better life, whether on or off the water.

Start your adventure
Whatever stage you’re at, from being a complete novice on the water or a maritime professional or somewhere in between, or you just need a challenge and some motivation, UKSA can help. We’ll give you the learning and training you need to be the person you want to be.

A unique environment
You’ll be in a unique environment, because as well as professional yachting and watersports career courses, we also provide multiple youth development opportunities, from school visits to working with disadvantaged and disabled young people.

Our charitable status means we do so much more than just provide training and certification. Fundraising, donations and our generous partners and volunteers help make UKSA the best possible place to learn about yachting and watersports.

Fulfil your potential
Whatever it is you’re looking to do, we’ll give you the skills and experience you need to fulfil your potential. Not only will we give you the very best training, we’ll also help you build your confidence and self-esteem in and out of the water.

We aim to have a lasting, lifelong impact on everyone we meet. At UKSA, we measure our success by your achievements, and we’re committed to providing you with an outstanding education whilst building essential life skills.

Our aim is to help every young person to successfully make the transition from education into a fulfilling career. So if you like the sound of what we do, explore your opportunities and discover just what we can achieve together.
