Go Sail combines an educational STEM workshop on the challenge of America’s Cup sailing with an on the water sailing taster session. Combining sailing with STEM learning has proven to be an effective formula for engaging young people with a range of learning styles and backgrounds.
The young people find out about the role STEM subjects play in today’s world and also have the chance to sign-up to continue sailing and gain RYA qualifications.

“It’s the first time I’ve been sailing on a boat like that before. I was saying to my friends that they should have gone because it was such a fantastic opportunity, it’s just four days of your time and you get a qualification at the end. This can lead on to other things too. My instructor Jimmy said I showed a lot of enthusiasm and he said he wants me to come back next summer to be a volunteer and do another sailing course – perhaps even more qualifications to become an instructor. My school have said it’s a really good opportunity. The Tech Deck was really good, because I like engineering and seeing how things are made so that was a good opportunity for me too.”
