UKSA’s waterfront campus in Cowes on the sunny Isle of Wight is the perfect location for residential and non-residential sailing and watersports activities.
UKSA offers yachting, dinghy sailing, kayaking, keelboating, paddleboarding, surfing, windsurfing, power boating and more, from leisure sessions to career courses.
The wider benefits of participation in watersports are widely recognised and include inspiration, enjoyment, teamwork, boosting self-confidence and self-reliance, as well as the making and sealing of friendships. This makes UKSA an ideal location for leisure activities, school trips, corporate activities and group/family visits. It is suitable for children age eight years upwards, as well as adults of any age.
The inspirational instructors at UKSA are experienced and fully qualified, so teachers or group organisers do not need to have experience of watersports prior to the visit as our experts take care of all activities afloat.
