Summer Watersports at Trevassack Lake

Hooray for the Summer holidays, the perfect time for creating core memories – summer seems to last forever when you’re little!

But what things to do during the summer holidays are on near Helston? 

As well as our sailing courses on the Helford River here’s our guide to What’s On at Trevassack Lake.

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 – for all ages and abilities. 

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.

Summer swims to keep your cool 

The next full membership starts 30th July and offers a greatly reduced rate for regular swimmers, however it’s just £6.50 for everyone else to drop in with no commitment meantime. Stay healthy this summer with refreshing, revitalising open water Lake Dips, before retreating to the café for coffee, cake and a chat.

Fun Multi-Activity Sessions

Join in the adventure with a 2.5 hour session trying out all the different water craft available on the day. Sessions are tailored according to the children – and the weather. So what they get to do depends on age, ability and general consensus of what looks the most fun! 

Calling all water-loving Pirates and Ninjas!

This summer there are a whole raft (!) of activities for you and your mates to get splashing – 6 to 10yr olds can join the Pirates for some swashbuckling adventures around the island and 11 to 15 yr olds will be wetsuited ninjas parkouring around the lake!
