Datchet Watersports are extremely proud to announce their opening of their

NEW MISTRAL NORTH TEST / HIRE CENTRE on April 3rd. A broad spectrum

range of brand new 2002 kit will be available with rigs from 4.5 upwards, including

the new prodigy, aiming to cover all levels of sailor.

The raised bank (80 feet up!), 500 acre reservoir gives excellent clean wind

sailing with

reaches of over a mile and a quarter! You can park overlooking the water and

launching is easy with prevailing cross-shore wind from a purpose built plastic

pontoon and beach area. Kit is only 15m from the water and is ready rigged!

Facilities include bar, food, hot showers and a school with tuition from beginner

to expert.

Steve Roberts, Ex - South African Windsurf National Champion and Centre Manager

says, "Our centre has distinct advantages for the land-locked, local London

sailors with little leisure time and no storage space. Rigging, storage, loading

and depreciation on bought kit are a thing of the past. We have a saying here

- 'Step on and Sail!' No hassle sailing."

The revolutionary 'Platinum Package' offers unlimited hire and tuition for

any level of ability from only £42 per month and a small initial fee.

If your just beginning or stuck on a plateau they can teach you.

Open Wednesday - Sunday at present and going 7 days in May the guys at Datchet

Watersports are expecting a big rush from the sailors that gave up windsurfing

due to the hassle factor and want life easy.

What do you need to sail there? - a pair of boots! More info on hire, teaching
