WELCOME

The National Sailing Academy offers the opportunity for Antiguan school children to learn  swimming and sailing free of charge. 

In 2010 the Government of Antigua & Barbuda  added sailing & swimming to the list of National Sports.  This allows these sports to be included in every school’s curriculum.

To facilitate this, the National Sailing Academy was incorporated as an independent non-profit charitable organization which is administered by a volunteer board. 

The potential benefits of this programme are manifold – to both the Antiguan community and the Yachting Industry,  which is growing year by year.   No other sport in Antigua can offer our young people the number & variety of employment opportunities – as well as becoming competitive racing sailors, they could, in time, become captains, crew, bosuns, engineers, riggers, sailmakers, sailing instructors etc.etc.   The first step is to get them involved in the sport. 

The Academy is being funded by donations from yachts, individuals, groups and businesses – both in Antigua and overseas. 

Please see our 'Support' page for details of how you may help us reach our goal.
