The Academy offers swimming and sailing lessons to Antiguan schoolchildren, as well as offering our ‘Sailability’ programme to the disabled children and adults of Antigua. All these programmes are free of charge to the participants.
They are not, however, free of charge to the Academy i.e. we have to pay rent and other overheads for the premises as well as wages for our instructors. We also have to maintain the property and the boats and pay for insurance, administration etc.
