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

of sailor.

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
