Brighton’s top 5 watersports

As the summer has decided to grant us one more flourish, it could be the last time for us mere mortals to grab a weekend in Brighton and take to the water before the warmth leaves our Sussex skies.

Here’s 5 watersports offered in Brighton.

Swimming

Easy! Provided you can swim. Temperatures are pushing well into the 20s so it’s a great chance to get in one more dip. Here’s a Brighton beach guide and here some obvious advice to follow from the RNLI but generally you’re fine just leisure swimming off most parts of Brighton beach.

Boat trips

Visiting with the family? Take them to the marina and look up the boat trips. There’s no better way to watch the sunset than from a boat.

Canoeing, Kayaking and Oddboarding

There’s a school/surf shop worth investigating if you’re after an active family weekend in Brighton. Take a look at the range of things to do at Brighton Watersports - if you’re wondering what the deal is with standing up on a surfboard, it’s actually Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) and the school does 2-hr lessons for £30.

Dingy sailing

Get yourself to Lagoon Watersports if you want to learn how to sail. In fact, it has courses in just about everything and beginners get to practice on the calm waters of Hove lagoon.

Jet ski

Fancy hitting the water with a little more power than that fond in the wind? Hire a jetski at Sussex Marine Watersports down the coast in Southwick. They’ll even escort you out to sea so you can get the hang of it.

Current special offers at Hove Lagoon include 50% off some courses

Brighton B&B says Spurs can stay (and lose 2-0)

If you haven’t heard, Brighton has got its new football stadium. After what seems like an age, the futuristic new design will get its official opening match later this month (July 30th) and if you are a visiting Spurs supporter looking to stay over, you’ll get a warm welcome at our Brighton B&B – your gonna lose mind, just thought we should mention that…

New stadium at Falmer

All rivalries aside, the American Express Community Stadium is stunning, and it comes just in time for Brighton’s move up the divisions. At last a team that promises real class has a stadium to take it into the next century.

And don’t underestimate the effect the team’s success can have on Brighton as a whole. It’s not just the increased numbers of people visiting Brighton; it’s also the added excitement it brings to the town.

Football fans down here are passionate followers of the seagulls – yet many people in town seem only interested in avoiding being shat on by them…

As the team gets more successful, and now with a great ground for people with footy families looking for weekends in Brighton, the feel good factor will spread.
