Windsurfing and Sailing

The Scilly Isles are a playground for those interested in exploring and having fun, with year round sailing, kayaking and windsurfing.
The islands lend themselves perfectly to all activities, with crystal clear blue water awaiting anyone willing to give it a go. Explore island studded bays and white sand bars and view the Scillies from a different perspective.

There are a variety of options, from hiring out dinghies, canoes or wayfarers to sailing courses given by experienced instructors. Novices and experienced sailors alike, there’s something to suit all ages and standards. Perhaps you would fancy the adrenalin rush of windsurfing across the Crow Sound? Or what about a skippered charter cruise around the islands, with everything done for you including a sumptuous dinner?
