Datchet Watersports are extremely proud to announce the commencement of their


'Step on & Sail Scheme' for Dinghy sailors and Windsurfers alike, at Queen

Mother Reservoir, 5 minutes from Heathrow.

Their revolutionary 'Platinum Package' offers Unlimited Hire and Unlimited Tuition

including wetsuits, harness & buoyancy aids for any level of ability from

only £42 per month and a small initial fee. If you're just beginning or

stuck on a plateau they can teach you and guide you through the maze of different

types of boat and styles of sailing.

An extensive fleet of boats is available predominately from the Topper range

and starts with the single handers through to assymetrics and cats. Windsurfers

have the choice of brand new 2002 kit from the North / Mistral stable covering

all abilities. If you are thinking of buying a boat then this is the opportunity

to try a complete fleet!

Steve Roberts, Centre Manager says, "Our centre has distinct advantages

for the land-locked, sailors with little leisure time and no desire for hassle.

Rigging, storage, trailing, maintenance and depreciation on your own boat is

a thing of the past. Our boats are 15 feet from the water on an easy to launch

beach! We have a saying here - 'Step on and Sail!' No hassle sailing."

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 from a gently shelving huge concrete slip. Facilities include

club with racing, bar, food, waterside parking and a RYA School with tuition

from Start Sailing through to Performance Sailing and Kites Courses.

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 want top notch kit

but no grief factor and want life easy.

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