Our all-inclusive summer holidays for families combine a fantastic selection of activities including - dinghy sailing, catamaran sailing, windsurfing, stand up paddle-boarding, kayaking and trail cycling in the local forest, whilst also leaving some well-deserved downtime to relax by your tent or the campsite pool.
Our 2 hour clinics run throughout the morning and afternoon with a break for a lovely buffet style lunch. With sessions in a variety of different levels and activities - dinghy and dart sailing, windsurfing, stand up paddleboarding, kayaking and trail biking, there will be something to suit everyone.
Adults and youngsters are normally split up as we find that they learn very differently, so for those who want to do activities as a family or take to the waters with friends, our ‘Free sail’ option allows you to make use of any available equipment during your holiday.
We also offer 2-day and 4-day RYA courses in sailing or windsurfing for a small supplement.
Those who choose to holiday with us for 2 weeks have free use of any available equipment during their second week or can participate in organised activity sessions. Our holidays are available from late July and throughout August.
Your family holiday will include sessions or courses in the following activities;
Nippers (3-6 years) - We offer a great activity programme for the younger members of your family. Under the watchful eye of our team, children will have a programme of land-based sessions as well as experiencing time on the water, keeping them entertained in a fun way while you enjoy your activities.
Youth (Age 7 years+) - Our sessions for youngesters aged between 7 and 15. Each of our sessions are focused on a particular skill. Each hour and a half on the water is aimed at developing skill progression giving them the confidence to go out on the water and further practice and enhance these skills.
Adults (16+) - For the older teenagers and adults, our sessions are much more focused. Each hour and a half on the water is aimed at developing skill progression as far as possible and give you the confidence to go out on the water and further practice and enhance your skills. Please note if that numbers are low, age groups may join together.
