We are now coming to the end of our second season and things are getting busier and busier. We like to put this down to our ability to provide instruction to all abilities with no pressure to those who may need just a little more time. Our recommendation levels are soaring, which we are very pleased with.
We have access to water for beginners, also to the Thames estuary with its major shipping lane to negotiate, so something for the more experienced to have a go at.
