At Rye Watersports we have been teaching children and school groups since 1986. We are committed to encouraging children into all our watersports and provide Royal Yachting Association courses from age 8 upwards and our ‘Kids Camps’ for 7 to 12 yr olds.  BKSA Kitesurfing lessons are for children from age 12 years.

Windsurfing and sailing courses are run on our safe inland lake on the South East coast, just on the Kent and Sussex border, and only minutes away from Camber Sands. From South London and Surrey it’s just over an hour to get to Rye Watersports for your kids windsurfing and sailing lessons and 50 minutes from Tunbridge Wells 

We have a thriving children’s windsurfing and dinghy sailing programme with an active T.15 club. Our windsurfing and sailing lessons draw in children from Surrey, Kent and Sussex to enjoy the benefits of sailing or windsurfing on an inland lake, close to the sea, where the wind always seems to blow.

During the school holidays we have a two hour sailing club from 10.00 – 12.00 for children who have completed their stage 1 sailing and a two hour windsurfing club from 1.00 – 3.00 for children who have completed their stage 1 windsurfing.  The cost is £25.00 per two hour session per child.  These clubs are run on a Wednesday.

Rye Watersports is family run and the instructors have considerable experience teaching children of all ages. It is Royal Yachting Association accredited and holds an ‘Adventure Activities’ license.

Each summer we run a series of ‘Kids Camps‘ where children learn to windsurf and sail in a fun, relaxed environment.  It’s a great way to build up their water confidence, interact with other children, and above all have an enormous amount of fun.

Sit on top kayaks are available to hire by the hour for parents who want to take younger children out of the water.
