Take the helm, set the sails, and navigate your course… On a summer adventure to remember!


Our Buccaneer Sail Camps are designed to take you on an adventurous voyage to discover new places, fun activities, and the potential that is inside of you - whether you are an experienced sailor or an absolute beginner. Our experienced crew and instructors will show you everything you need to know and guide you every step of the way. And in the end, it’s not what you already know that counts.

On Your Vouyage...

On your voyage you will learn to sail and navigate a boat, observe wildlife and help protect the environment, work in an awesome team of like-minded people and achieve learning new skills and sailing qualifications – all while having the time of your life with friends that will last forever! Some of our Buccaneer Sail Camps will even take you abroad to explore new countries and cultures, and some include scuba diving courses - watch out for our logo with the goggles!

Our Buccaneer adventures start and finish in the UK – usually on the South Coast or in Scotland - and you will be amazed at how much our own “backyard” has to offer. You could find yourself snorkelling for sea horses in Studland Bay, rock-pooling off of Durdle Door, examining on-shore coastal erosion at Weymouth Bay, watching out for whales and sea birds or scouting out estuaries and creeks on paddle boards and canoes. While exploring the British coastline with your crew mates and flotilla, no one day will be the same!

If weather (and travel restrictions) permit, your Buccaneer flotilla will make its way across the English Channel to explore even more new places. You might be dropping a mackerel line over the side and enjoy a tasty BBQ on one of the beautiful beaches of the Channel Islands, having a picnic of cheese and baguette on the Brittany Coast of France or exploring the scenic Dutch canals or where the wind takes you…

Getting out of your comfort zone and daring to try something new is what will make your Sail Camp holiday an experience you will never forget!  

Be part of Flotilla Life...

You will live on a yacht with up to 9 other adventurers of the same age, as well as a professional Skipper and Mate. You will be working as a team to sail your boat towards your next adventure, and before you know it, you will all be friends. On most Sail Camps, your yacht will be sailing as part of a flotilla to give you the best of both worlds – the tightly knit friendship with your fellow crew mates AND the fun of activities and get-together with a larger group.


Your 14 day Buccaneer Summer Sail camp's includes Quaystage Training's Sceince@Sea programme.  On board you will spend some of your time learning about Marine Life and biodiversity, looking at the impact of micro plastics, assisting with conducting a health check of the Solent.
