Hello to Everyone,
We know things are very challenging for all of us in the field of education right now. We hope everyone is doing well despite the challenges.
At the National Sailing Academy, we have discussed our reopening policy and procedures and are now reopening with immediate effect.
We would love to see students coming back both old and new, and the team are looking forward to working with all of the students to further develop their sailing skills.
At this stage, in line with Government regulations, we are welcoming back students who are in 4th grade upwards. For students aged 12 and over they must be vaccinated and be in possession of a vaccination card or medical or religious exemption certificate. You can be re-assured that all of our instructors and the office team are fully vaccinated.
To make the process easier we have now put the registration and consent forms online so as to minimize paper and contact. There is also a new code of conduct which expect all students to adhere to when on property. Respecting each other, our instructors and our property is at the heart of it.

In addition we have converted to a new electronic registration system this year to again reduce paperwork so as students arrive, the instructors will check them in on their device.
A little bit of exciting news from us in case you haven’t heard about it – two of our ex-students, who went to All Saints Secondary School, Junella King and Alesea Charles, have just begun a new career based in the UK, but about to sail off around the world quite literally on a boat which is promoting gender equality and seeking to inspire women around the world.

We thank you for your assistance in these new processes and really look forward to having students back on the property and developing new sailors of the future.
