We are offering a week of activities for the forthcoming Festival of the Sea, as well as a special Fun Day.

Between September 14 to 21 we have discounted morning or afternoon taster sessions in paddle boarding and kayaking for adults and children aged over eight.

For just £15 per session, participants will enjoy tuition in their chosen watersport. Places need to be booked in advance, by phoning 01983 203001.


We are also hosting a free Fun Day on September 22.

There will be free one hour taster sessions scheduled in paddleboarding, windsurfing, kayaking and wet team games. UKSA staff will be offering tours of site and the fleet of boats.

As a bonus, the first 12 people onsite when the gates open at 10am will be lucky enough to secure a golden ticket for two hours sailing on Avocet, a 43ft yacht, in the afternoon. This is not for those age under 12, or those age under 18 without their parents.

Additionally, the next 48 people onsite will get silver tickets for a two hour keelboat experience.

Watersports activities are suitable for those aged eight and over, but younger children will find plenty to do – although must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

The coffee shop will be open for refreshments, cakes, ice creams and sandwiches, and there will be a BBQ. A waterside fete will include stalls and games.

Isle of Wight Radio will be broadcasting live from the site throughout the day

The last activity sessions start at 2.30pm and the gates close at 4.30pm.
