Enrichment Weeks at Hove Lagoon

Our most popular option is a multi sports week trying a whole range of exciting activities. We can offer weeks dedicated to learning one sport working towards a national recognised qualification or a multi activity week with a preference to one sport with the aim of gaining a certificate for that activity or just a week of fun trying everything!

Choose from

  • Stand Up Paddleboarding
  • Dinghy Sailing
  • Windsurfing
  • Kayaking
  • Raft building and raft racing
  • Land based team challenges
  • Wakeboarding

Success and fun guaranteed as we will get students out on the water learning a new activity and having a great time. Full tuition and all equipment is provided.

Hove Lagoon is the perfect venue for large groups and we regularly cater for groups of over 50 students.

Price : Varies depending on group size. As a rough guide a group of over 24 students would cost approximately £46 pp per day. Part weeks are available.

What to bring: Swimsuit and towel
Age range: 6+
Venue: Hove Lagoon

On this exciting Enrichment Week we can offer a combination of an RYA Youth Sailing Stage 1 qualfication, a sailing trip and a powerboat ride.
RYA Sailing Level 1: Involves learning how to sail, navigate and work as part of a team. The syllabus will cover the following:

  • Basic sailing including steering, tacking, gybing, sailing across the wind and taking the helm
  • Learning parts of the boat
  • Ropework
  • Collision avoidance and turning
  • Safety procedures
  • Working as part of the team and as a crew member

Trip: We can also practice some navigation and plan a short trip to Newhaven or Shoreham. The students will learn how to plan, sail and reach a destination. An extremely rewarding accomplishment!
Powerboat Ride: We can also offer a fun and exhilarating powerboat experience during the week where the students will have the opportunity to drive our powerboat with our instructor.

Price: £199 pp

Prerequisite: No experience required. We realise that some children will have experience in sailing so we can offer higher qualifications or practice. We can tailor the 4 days to the requirements of the students.

Eddie has just returned from the 2nd day of the windsurfing course today. He had a fabulous time. It was fun watching him in the sunshine and seeing him progress from being a complete beginner to sailing across the lagoon on his own. Many thanks to Amber for the expert tuition. Eddie already says he wants to return for the next level. It was great fun.”

We have been using Hove Lagoon now for many years for all our watersports provision. We have had activity weeks, sailing and windsurfing courses and have recently taken part in the schools sailing cup. We have always found the Staff of the Lagoon to be incredibly professional in their work and our students have all made great progress while having a fantastic time. The equipment is up to date and of high quality. I would strongly recommend Hove Lagoon to other schools. They make the booking and organisation easy. Well done Hove Lagoon”

Paul Miller, Deputy Head Cardinal Newman School

“We’ve been working with Lagoon Watersports for a number of years, and their activities are always very popular among our pupils. Their staff are knowledgeable and helpful, relating well to children of a range of ages and abilities. Many of our pupils come back year after year. Importantly for us as a school group, they are flexible and work with us to meet our requirements regarding safety regulations as well as logistics. Instruction in a range of watersports is of high quality and the activities are a lot of fun. I always look forward to working with Lagoon Watersports as I know my pupils will receive an enjoyable and rewarding experience.”

Tim Peters, Lancing Prep
