This year's Youth Afloat festival in Poole promises a superb weekend of action

packed fun. Held on 30 June and 1 July, the weekend is open to all 8 to 17 year

olds who'd like to taste a variety of amazing watersports, including windsurfing,

sub-aqua diving, offshore sailing, dinghy sailing, fishing, life saving, dragon

boat racing, canoeing, raft racing, rowing and surf chasing, to name a few.

You can take part in activities on your own, which is a great way to meet new

friends, or you can go as part of a group. And don't worry if you haven't got

any previous experience - there will be plenty of qualified instructors on hand

to give you expert tuition. Youth Afloat is also able to cater for youngsters

with disabilities.
