The Ocean Carnival
17 May 2005
in association with Hapstead Volvo
The Ocean Carnival is held over the May bank holiday weekend at Lagoon Watersports.
The Ocean Carnival is not just another â€˜extreme' sports event. At this event the general public can not only watch some of the most extreme sports in the United Kingdom, but they can also actually get involved and try the sports for themselves.
At the centre of the Ocean Carnival are the main â€˜Water' sports, such as Windsurfing, Dinghy Sailing and Powerboat rides. However for the 05 Carnival there will also be a range of other activities such as wakeboarding, Zap Cats, Dragon Boat Racing, along with a Skateboard and BMX Jam!
Lagoon Watersports Taster Sessions
We will be offering Windsurfing and Dinghy Sailing taster sessions to the general public throughout the bank holiday weekend. The cost is kept at a minimum at around £7.50 per adult and £5 per child to encourage people to have a go at Windsurfing and Dinghy Sailing. It's a great fun day for everyone involved, and we can teach children from the age of 6.
