This Girl Can

Inspiration from Lagoon Watersports

‘This Girl Can’ is a national campaign developed by Sport England and a wide range of partnership organisations. It is a celebration of active women up and down the country who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets.

Here at Lagoon Watersports almost half our customers are women of all ages and abilities.

There are some great stories of women coming to us to try a new activity and going on to become watersports instructors.

Getting on and in the water revitalises your soul, opens up a whole new world of activity and friendship.

This Girl can - Ella learns to wakeboard coached by Harriet

I enter the Lagoon on a warm summer’s evening, taking in the energetic nature in the water as beginners and professionals alike share an adrenaline rush on the wakeboarding cable. For a brief moment my teenager alarm rings as I question whether the joggers and dog walkers circling the lagoon will be counting…


Yacht races


Anna Strang works for Lagoon Watersports from the Brighton Marina centre as a senior sailing and yachting instructor. She is one of a handful of women skippering yachts in the 2015 Fastnet race. We recently caught up with Anna Strang and asked her a few questions about her sailing and experiences on the water.




I wake up unusually early on a Saturday morning but the fact that the sun is shining and I’m going to be Stand-Up-Paddle boarding over the glistening water offers a lot of reassurance. Although, considering my poor balance and co-ordination skills, I prepare to giggle at myself for when I fall spectacularly off the board.




Abi joined us as an apprentice in 2014 with very little watersports experience. She now takes part, teaches and sails yachts. Abi’s story is coming soon…
