At Rye Watersports we offer Royal Yachting Association Windsurfing Courses and private lessons for adults and children on our coastal lake near Camber Sands, East Sussex in the South East of England. Here on the edge of the Sussex coast, London seems a million miles away!
Windsurfing lessons are taught on safe flat water that is ideal for anyone new to windsurfing. The South Coast offers varied conditions, but our coastal lake is perfect for lessons/beginners and experts alike. The lakes close proximity to the sea at Camber Sands means we get consistent force 4 sea breezes throughout the Summer months, and stronger winds during Spring and Autumn.
Rye town, only a ten minute walk away, has cobbled streets, art galleries and antique shops. A perfect place to while away a few hours, or stay overnight to make a week-end of it.
