A summary
Join us at the Formula Kite European Championships and have your first taste of wingsurfing! This session will give you a basic introduction to the sport. The course is split into two parts; flying the wing ashore, and then getting afloat! Delivered in partnership between Andrew Simpson Centres and the Royal Yachting Association, these sessions are delivered launching off Southsea seafront, and are part of the beach club at the Formula Kite European Championships. So book your space and be part of this unique event! Sessions will be taught in groups of 4, so if you would like to be grouped with friends or family members, please ensure you select the same group when booking. We are unable to make changes to this group number. Please ensure you arrive 15 minutes before the start time of your session to sign in. If you do not, we may give your space to a walk-in booking.

Free bookings do not require refunds but as places are limited, please cancel if you cannot attend so that your place can be offered to someone else.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
