How to Apply

To apply for the British Keelboat Academy, you need to be aged between 18-24 years old during the squad year.

The BKA 2018/19 applications are now open.

You need to have a British passport and be available to train and race in the UK. You need to be able to pay the squad fee (£300) which helps pay for the training weekends, boats, coaches, lecture rooms and clothing.  Accommodation and food will only be provided at the Squad Induction weekend (3/4th November).

To race at a high level, sailors need to be physically and mentally fit. The programmes include fitness sessions aiming at improving your personal fitness; please contact us if you think this could be an issue.

If you have any concerns or queries, please contact us.
