Our Kids Clubs increases in popularity each year. They run during the summer school holidays. Our Kids Club is aimed at all children from age 8-16 and is a fun but structured way to get children on the water and improving their skills in different sports.

This year we can offer the same activities as last year, such as windsurfing, sailing but also a week of multiple activities including kayaking, Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUPing) and raft building. Ask Nick for more information.
