1851 / Rebels Sailing Cardiff

Cardiff Sailing Centre have been appointed as a Flagship Centre for the Rebels Sailing Programme for 2019.

The national sailing initiative for disadvantaged young people aged 11-14, is generously supported by INEOS, the company behind INEOS TEAM UK, the British challenger for the America’s Cup, led by Sir Ben Ainslie, the most successful Olympic sailor of all time, and is organised by the 1851 Trust.

The aim of the project is to give sailing experiences to young people who would not otherwise have this kind of opportunity. The experiences give them the chance to develop important life skills such as confidence, resilience and teamwork.

The sailing opportunities at each centre are fully funded in 2019, and students can take part in a ‘taster’ session or work towards a nationally recognized qualification such as RYA Stage 1 or 2.

If you wish to get involved in the programme and your school meets the criteria of a pupil premium percentage greater than 35%, or in Wales, an FSM greater than 20% and is located within a 20 mile radius of us, please contact us on:
