We are a charitable trust, based at a lake in Westbury, Wiltshire and our primary aim is to introduce young people between the ages of 8 and 18 to the sport of sailing.

Starting in 1967 we had just three boats and a group of keen volunteers. Forty years on we now have 19 boats, two safety boats and a team of RYA qualified instructors so are able to offer sailing tuition to approximately 100 children per week throughout our season.

The association is self financing and run completely by volunteers. We are a Royal Yachting Association recognised teaching centre and would love to teach you how to sail.
