Sessions just for you 

If you’d like some instruction in sailing or paddlesports or just some family time afloat, please get in touch and we will create a bespoke lake session to suit your exact needs. 

Our friendly and experienced watersports staff will assist you with skills and tips on how to keep afloat and what to do if you fall in! But the main thing is to have fun while you learn how to operate the equipment safely.
