We had a fantastic 2-hour sailing cruise on a beautiful sunny day, although the wind was very disappointing! Great staff and boat. Highly recommended.
Excellent instructors – felt really looked after and clearly informed. 10 out of 10
I used Lagoon to take a friend and I out for a couple of hours sailing.
We found them very friendly and helpful throughout our time.
They were very professional and gave us good advice about subsequent courses.
I would definitely recommend them for either a fun day out sailing or if you are thinking of taking up sailing.
We had an absolutely fabulous day sailing on 26ft sigma and Could not recommend it enough. Amy and Martin were brilliant! helpful, friendly and fun and encouraged us to be hands on or we could just relax. Pure bliss didn't want it to end.
