Centre Manager
Henry Marshall

I have sailed my whole life, from small boats to big racing yachts. Originally I’m from Plymouth. My family have always had boats and I learnt to sail at a young age. I have been teaching sailing for over a decade and have had the pleasure of working in many countries all over the world.

Our founding story

Aqua Sports has been making waves since 1993. Founded in by John and Martin (friends and watersports enthusiasts) who had a vision to bring the world of watersports to this inland beauty spot.

Sam and Charlie took over the reins in 2001 and over this time, Aqua Sports has taught tens of thousands of young people and adults to sail, windsurf and paddle. Some of those have pursued these sports competitively, some have developed these sports into careers in the outdoor education industry, and many have used these sports to travel, meeting amazing new people and some…. have come back to help write a new chapter for Aqua Sports.

Core values

Aqua Sports was founded on a deep love for adventure, a passion for watersports and a commitment to pass that passion on to as many people as possible.

That commitment remains stronger than ever and we are working hard each year to make it the best year yet at the lake. We can’t wait to see you on the water!
