What to Bring - Watersports

Water sports What to Bring

What to wear for sailing, canoeing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and raft building?

For all our water activities and courses you will be offered a wetsuit (excluding boat hire), especially during colder weather. If you have your own wetsuit, bring that with you. We recommend you wear a wicking thermal layer underneath and swimming costume/shorts for comfort. Please avoid wearing cotton t-shirts underneath your wetsuit as these just stay wet and make you cold.

Please wear closed toe footwear suitable for getting wet e.g. old trainers or neoprene shoes. Flip flops and crocs are unsuitable and may get lost in the lake.

Don’t forget a full change of clothes, footwear and a towel as you might get wet!

In sunny weather remember your sunhats and sun cream.

What to wear for Powerboat Courses? 


Powerboating is an exhilarating activity and as such you may reach high speeds or be stationary whilst driving the boats. Please bring warm layers and water proof jacket and trousers to keep you snug. Hats, sunglasses and snoods can also help keep you warm in windy conditions. 


For Powerboat courses please bring a passport sized photo with you for your certificates.
