Benefiting the boating community

The Haven Academy was founded in 2010 and created in order to benefit the boating community with new and worthwhile initiatives. Its aim is to encourage new projects rather than reward past achievements.

academylogoWith this in mind Haven Knox-Johnston sponsors an annual award, entries for which are voted on by the public and assessed by a panel of judges chaired by the legendary yachtsman Sir Robin Knox-Johnston.

The winning project is funded up to £5,000 and will be partnered by us throughout the year.   Since 2010, the Haven Academy have rewarded a number of worthy projects – for further information about the Haven Academy, the current winners and their activities, visit
