  • Sailing Lessons
  • Raft Building
  • Canoe Lessons
  • Bell Boating
  • Land Based Activities

We offer the following activities to groups and schools:

Sailing lessons

The students will use various types of boats depending on their size, age and experience. After a talk about the technique the students will be shown how to sail by one of our instructors. They will be able to take control of the boat as soon as the instructor thinks they are capable.

The average time required to achieve a Level 1 certificate is 16 hours on the water and RYA certificates can be issued to students who reach the required standard.

The ratio of students to instructors is 6-1

Raft-building

Raft-building encourages students to work together to build a raft using the parts provided. The finished raft will safely transport them around the lake.

Students will be split into two competing teams and there will be various races and challenges along the course.

The ratio of students to instructors is 12-1.

Bell Boating

Bell Boating and Raft-Building are both excellent team-building activities. The Bell Boats are very stable, large boats that can seat up to 14 students. The instructor steers the boat and motivates the crew. We have two Bell Boats so racing can be great fun and provides an excellent climax to the day’s session.

The ratio of students to instructors is 14-1.

 

Pedalo Sessions

Taking to the water on our state of the art pedalo's the students will group in teams of 4 to navigate their way around the lake.

This fun experience is always a great hit with students of all ages.

The session will build on team work and coordination skills.

The ratio of students to instructors is 16–1.

Canoe lessons

Students start by learning the correct way to hold the paddle and different paddling techniques. Once they have mastered the art of going forwards, backwards and turning, we progress onto games with the canoes, such as making a raft with canoes.

The ratio of students to instructors is 8-1.
