Plenty planned by the guys at Lagoon Watersports this summer – read on for full details…
Action-packed summer for Lagoon Watersports
Lagoon Watersports have got a few busy weeks ahead with a range of exciting events to keep the community busy, creating a real buzz of activity and giving literally everyone a chance to get involved. Lagoon Watersports have got a stand at the TakePart International Festival of Sport and at Paddle Round The Pier whilst also offering taster sessions at Hove Lagoon on both those weekends, they host the BSA Slalom Event and the very special Windsurf for Cancer party.
You can expect a large crowd heading to Preston Park on Saturday 19th June from 12 – 5 pm to kickstart the International Festival of Sport, with the Lagoon Watersports team keen to give everyone the chance to have a go at windsurfing and sailing. The TakePart Day is a large scale free event with a fantastic exhibition of sports and physical activities, and you have got 2 options with Lagoon Watersports – taster sessions in Preston Park which are best described as balance tests on dry land (no need to get into a wetsuit!), or alternatively you can head to Hove Lagoon for one of their much sought-after taster sessions on the calm and safe waters of the Lagoon. Adults and kids are offered the chance to try windsurfing or sailing for just £10 per person as part of the TakePart festival, sessions include all equipment and full tuition and are suitable for beginners. There are sessions for different age groups on 19, 26 and 27 June. Check out www.lagoonwatersports.co.uk or call 01273 42 48 42 for more information.
Lagoon Watersports have been supporting the huge charity event Paddle Round The Pier for the last few years, and will be showing their support again this year. The well-known beach festival takes place on Hove Lawns and Hove seafront during the weekend of 3 & 4 July, and the team from Lagoon Watersports are passionate about introducing as many people as possible to water sports, offering kids and adults the chance to have a go at sailing whilst supporting the various charities. Visit them on Hove Lawns to say Hello, have an informative chat to the team and get out on the water.
3 & 4 July will be a busy weekend indeed as Lagoon Watersports also host Round 5 of the British Slalom Association 2010 series on Hove Lagoon. This is one of 8 events, and the first of a mini series of events hosted by North-Sails, Fanatic and iON with prizes provided by Baker Academy and Sportif. Last year Mat Pearch took top honours and it looks like this year’s event is going to be an awesome, adrenaline-fuelled contest with Mat keen to defend the title.

Another date for your diary is 10 July - Lagoon Watersports are hosting a special Windsurf For Cancer party at the Portland Rock Bar in Hove with doors open from 8 pm. Anyone is welcome, windsurfer or not, with one common aim – raising as much money as possible for W4C. The party is a celebration of all things windsurfing with big screens showing windsurfing movie classics, a big windsurf raffle with prizes from Fanatic North and Boardridersguide, and music by Lagoon Watersports’ very own band ‘Twig and The Giggleberries’. For more information on the charity visit www.windsurfing4cancerresearch.org or get in touch with Lagoon Watersports. A big thank you to lagoon.co.uk , Fanatic/North and boardridersguide.co.uk for supporting and sponsoring the party.
