UKSA is a youth charity offering transformational opportunities for young people through sailing and watersports. We focus on three areas: personal development, schools and group visits, and professional maritime training. We are based in Cowes, Isle of Wight - the heart of the yachting world.
We don't just offer certification and training, as a youth charity we can offer that bit extra. We really look after our young people. Our careers students benefit from 1:1 mentoring, access to our careers network, realistic careers advice and help with CVs. We help over 9,000 people a year to achieve their personal best. We have a fantastic fleet, a waterfront campus, inspirational instructors and great facilities.
Our Professional Yachtmaster course offers more flexibility than ever before, with multiple and frequent start dates to enable you to train your way.
The all-inclusive 14-week course will equip you with the training, preparation and practical experience needed to gain the commercially endorsed RYA Yachtmaster Offshore qualification.
Whether you want to sail commercial yachts under 24m for employment opportunities in flotilla, charter, deliveries and instruction, or you would prefer to work on large ocean going yachts and superyachts, Professional Yachtmaster provides a fast and effective way to enter the industry and start your career.
All that we ask is that you have enough sailing experience to know that you want a life at sea.
