5-Day Multi-Activity Windsurfing (Stage 1)

New for 2022 is our re-vamped Multi-Activity course programme. We have focused these courses on fun, making it the easiest way for juniors to get on the water and experience what the outdoor life has to offer.

The layout of the course is divided into windsurfing and paddle sports, with the younger sailors working towards their RYA Stage 1 qualification.

The paddlesport & raft building element of the course is the ideal break from the technical aspects of windsurfing and the perfect fun session to finish your day on! We use a mixture of SUP paddleboards and kayaks based on the reservoir and then progressing onto the Thames and some river adventures towards the end of the week! The children will also experience fun and games with our NEW raft building sessions, building communication and team building skills on their final day.

There's lots of fun to be had on this course and you'll make plenty of friends too!
