the centre's facilities to make life for you as easy as possible.
The water's edge can be reached by walking, or using the two courtesy

the pontoons every 20 minutes or so.
The water is accessed by 144 metres of pontoons with kit trolleys

centre has classrooms for instructor and club use, training tank,
shop, a brand new state of the art gas room, hire equipment, cafe,
changing rooms and toilets, etc.
