About Us

Our vision is to provide affordable sailing tuition to young people with physical disabilities who would benefit from using the sip and puff method of sailing.

The Miss Isle School of Sip and Puff Sailing has been born out of the constant drive and desire to open sailing up to more people who wouldn’t otherwise have access to it.Natasha has had so much success in sailing, both from a personal and public point of view. Now she wants to get more people involved in the sport she has come to love. Coupled with Gary’s ingenuity and Mandy’s passion and drive the Miss Isle School of Sip & Puff Sailing has become a reality.

The team are committed to providing a true quality sailing experience to anyone who comes to sail with Miss Isle. You can be sure of a personal touch from the attentive team and a great standard of delivery afloat. Natasha’s individual success is testament to her drive and the strength and depth of the team around her.

Simon Evans

I started sailing with my parents aged three and carried on in dinghies throughout my younger years, racing in Mirrors, 420’s and 470’s. In my spare time I was also an instructor at a sailing centre in Cardiff where I taught a range of different people including those with disabilities and it really gave me a perspective on how sailing can give opportunities and bring enjoyment to people who might not normally get the chance to do it. As a consequence, I believe it is important that we strive to give this opportunity to as many people as possible through the charity.
