The AHOY Centre logo
'A Charity Changing Peoples Lives through Sailing & Rowing’

AHOY will continue to develop and expand its facilities to create a flagship centre for water based activities that continue to breakdown social barriers and teach and train people to help others. By doing so more people will have the opportunity to benefit from the activities, courses and experiences, gaining confidence and broadening horizons. AHOY is changing people’s lives through the medium of sailing & rowing.’

At AHOY we use the medium of sailing & rowing to break-down barriers and bring people together from many different walks of life.

It is a fact that today we live in a society where there are great divides within our communities — which often leads to a breakdown of both communication and understanding.

Through the activities and courses at AHOY we teach and train people not only how to sail or row but also about how to help others, so that they can then go on and teach and help more people..

Our primary objective is working with both disadvantaged youth and people with disabilities.

However the Centre caters for all – young, disabled and retired alike. It offers them all the experience, opportunities and new horizons gained through water based activities

There is a major focus on teamwork and personal development and through the courses and activities we look to build self-esteem, confidence and offer training which will lead to employment.
