Welcome to KOSA
The Full Story
We’re a not-for-profit social sailing club, and have an affiliation with the RYA. We were founded by a group of sailors living in Kuwait more than 25 years ago and till today we are the only yachting club in the country.
We offer sailing opportunities for all skill levels from beginners to the experienced sailor. We are a small community brought together by our love for sailing , and a place where one can meet like minded people interested in acquiring the skills needed to sail a boat as well as having the opportunity to socialize with other members in the club.

Racing takes place most Friday mornings. The courses use a selection of local marks located in and around the coastal waters off Fahaheel. These sessions generally last around 3 - 4 hours and represent a great opportunity to sharpen your seamanship skills. After each race, we get together over breakfast. Families are also welcomed.
Cruising/ Mile Builder
Cruising/Mile Builder sessions will continue to be offered on Saturdays (AM/PM), giving the opportunity for those who prefer to relax and enjoy cruising in Kuwait waters. Moreover, for those who want to learn the essentials of sailing can also avail from these sessions.
To break up the working week, KOSA also offers mid-week sunset sailing. We generally set sail at 5.30 PM and the sessions last around 2-3 hours, enough to experience some night sailing and see some spectacular sunsets falling over Kuwait.
One of our key aims is to introduce people to the joys of sailing.
Although we are not an authorized Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Training establishment, we are however an RYA affiliated club. Our training sessions follow the RYA ‘Competent Crew’ syllabus.
