Who We Are

Quaystage Training is an experiential learning provider which works in partnership with schools and educational organisations, creating outdoor learning experiences based around the marine environment, using the principles of sail training and outdoor education to stimulate personal and vocational development.

We provide youth sailing adventures and teen summer sail camps, offering young people and teens the chance to challenge, stretch and develop themselves in an environment unlike any other.   

  • Learning is achieved through experiential learning experiences
  • Water based activities which develop cognitive, social and motor skills, as well as social and enviromental awareness
  • Educational programmes for young people and teens ranging from 3-14 days in exciting locations
  • Gap year or transition year experiences around the UK and further afield
  • Programmes delivered during summer and winter vacations and during school terms for school groups as a unique experiential learning platform. 

Our mission 

As an organisation, our mission is to inspire self-confidence and develop personal growth in young people, giving them a sense of belonging as well as responsibility to themselves and the environment. 

  • Our programmes aim to instil leadership skills and develop individuals through high quality activity-based sailing and diving adventures.
  • Our programmes and staff empower students to work as a team to take on the responsibilities of life on board yachts and large sailing vessel. 
  • We hope that the young people that sail with us will go on to inspire others within their generation

School and Educational Experiences

Take your classroom or school outside and on the water for a totally different education experience. 

Quaystage Training provides schools, colleges and other educational establishments with outdoor education opportunities and "active classroom experiences" for young people.  We work in partnerships with head teachers and subject leaders to meet school specified learning requirements.


Information For Schools

Working with young people

Experiential education and outdoor learning are becoming increasingly important in the development of the lives of young people. Our courses and training programmes are designed to provide young people with the skills to influence the outcome of the journey towards their adult lives, by providing them with learning and adventure experiences that will teach, guide and coach them at a key stage of their development. 

Participants are encouraged to put the effort into their voyages to help develop themselves, and as such the process and outcomes of Quaystage's adventure and training courses are as follows:
