We have created a new content and syllabus for our Multi-Activity courses and are proud to add in raft building and SUP days to this course. We have also re-introduced our bigger and faster dinghies for multi-hulled sailing with our NEW and revamped Performance and CAT Weeks.


Happy & Healthy

The safety and welfare of our staff and clients is always a priority, we will continue to follow government COVID guidance and when required, implement the following measures:


- All theory lessons to be held outside in sheltered areas, as well as lunch stops.

- Groups to be given a base at a gazebo in a specified, sheltered area at a point around the reservoir; these areas will be used for lunch and teaching throughout the day, making for a fantastic cruise for our younger groups as they experience a mini-adventure using their new-found skills!

- All groups to be allocated their own equipment for the week, including buoyancy aids and boats. These will be cleaned and sanitized by our staff at the end of the week.

- All instructors to be equipped with a sanitizing, cleaning & first aid pack to hand.   


Looking Into The Summer

We have revamped our Multi-Activity option to be the ideal beginner water sport course, featuring dinghy sailing stage 1, Stand-Up-Paddle and kayak days as well as raft building days. We have also invested heavily in new equipment for 2023 with brand new Fusion sailboats for adults as well as three new RS CAT 16's for those advanced kids looking to try something new and exciting!


In addition our ‘after-course’ kayak fun sessions will be happening on the Thames as usual, you can book these at checkout after you select your course.


As well as our usual kit list, please ensure you bring the following items.

- Please make sure you arrive at the centre ready to sail. Changing rooms are available if necessary but arriving changed will give more time on the water. 

- Please ensure that if bringing a lunch you have it secured in a separate bag so it can be transported to your lunch area separate to any other belongings you may bring. You must also bring a water bottle to keep you hydrated, the minimum recommended is 2 litres.

- Make sure that the person attending the course has enough clothing for a full day outside in various conditions, good waterproof clothing as well as your own wetsuit and buoyancy aid is strongly recommended.
