Sailing

Learn to sail in the South East and develop your skills on the beautiful, scenic Mote Park Lake based in Maidstone, Kent, UK.

Mote Park Watersports Centre is a RYA Recognised Training Centre offering a huge variety of sailing activity. Mote Park Watersports Centre is also an RYA Onboard Club for sailing and a Sailability centre offering sailing sessions for disabled sail. 

Our sailing fleet is made up from fantastic Laser Performance boats, and we have a boat for every occasion. Ranging from single handers so you can practise on your own, double handers which are great for a family day out as well as Catamarans for that burst of speed!
