Watersports courses available for Isle of Wight half-term breaks

Youngsters visiting the Isle of Wight over the half-term holidays will have the opportunity to partake in a variety of different watersports.

Isle of Wight Council has highlighted Cowes as an ideal place to visit during the upcoming school break, due to the fact that several courses are set to be available that allow families to try their hand at a number of pursuits.

The UK Sailing Academy is running two five-day multi-activity courses, one of which is intended for those between the ages of eight and 12, while the other caters for 13 to 16-year-olds.

It allows participants to engage in two days of dinghy sailing followed by two days of windsurfing, with the final day being dedicated to kayaking.

Meanwhile, the Island Youth Water Activities Centre is also offering kayaking training this half-term with a two-day course, with tuition and equipment provided.

Cowes is famous for its aquatic sports thanks to the annual Cowes Week sailing regatta, which is the largest event of its kind in the world.
