Frequently Asked Questions
Hove Lagoon is an old Victorian boating lake so has a solid bottom and is only waist deep. This means that any time you need to you can stand up. It is also right next to the sea so on those hot sunny days when there is little wind we can usually expect a sea breeze. Being next to the sea when people are ready we can move their learning away from the lagoon and on to the sea itself. The lagoon is in the middle of a public park so not only do you have the beach near by but you also have a kids play area and a skate park so anyone not taking part will have something to do. There is also an onsite licensed cafe for spectators and participants.
Lagoon Watersports originated at Hove Lagoon and specialized in windsurfing. As the Lagoon became more successful owners Harvey and Sebastian realised that we needed a centre with direct access to the sea for sailing and powerboating. Sebastian set up Lagoon Watersports in Brighton Marina in 2000

Be aware rebooking fees are charged for cancellations made with less than 4 weeks notice.
Our cancellation policy applies in all circumstances including no shows, illness, relocation, transport failure and bereavement.
