Course Reviews

“Really great introduction to the Lagoon and all the stuff that goes on there. We will definitely do more stuff there in the future as a family”.

Sam Cullen
I am writing on behalf of the parents whose children attended a first time sailing session on Friday at \'The Lagoon\' . They all had such an excellent experience that we wanted to write to congratulate you on the service we all had. The children had a 2 hour session with Ben and Isaac, and as well as giving the children a fantastic lesson, in pretty windy conditions, Ben and Issac provided an informative and fun time, as well as promoting confidence.

"Really loved it - bit wet"

"it was mighty - I loved it!!!"
