Powerboating

Windsurfing, sailing, canoeing – our RYA recognised school and modern hire fleet have made Croft Farm well-known for watersports since we opened in 1985.

We have a good range of powerboats that we use to teach some of the essential boat handling skills and safety points within the RYA scheme
