NEW MISTRAL / NORTH TEST AND HIRE CENTRE
Datchet Watersports is extremely proud to announce the opening of their new
centre on April 3rd. A broad range of brand new 2002 kit will be available with
rigs from 4.5 upwards, including the new prodigy, aiming to cover all levels
The 500-acre reservoir’s raised bank (80 feet up!) 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 seven 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
