Members have two options for going on the sea.

1) Members age 12+,  may attend our instructor lead clinics or supervised practise sessions where safety cover will be provided.

2) Experienced windsurfers and SUP members, age 18+,  may opt to hire equipment when we are NOT prodividing safety cover. Members will be rquired to demonstrate their ability level and sign an additional Unuspervised hire agreement. There is no extra charge for this.

Important Warning Flags

  • I understand that if a red flag is flown or waved whilst I am on the water, this is a signal that I am expected to return to the beach immediately.
  • If the Duty Manager decides the conditions are unsuitable for an effective rescue we will not offer safety cover and a red flag is flown. In these conditions unsupervised sailing may be on offer.

Clothing

  • I understand I must wear a buoyancy aid. Experienced windsurfers may wear a harness.
  • I understand Lagoon Watersports recommends I wear a wetsuit at all times.

Important safety equipment
I understand it can be very difficult for Lagoon Watersports to identify when a hirer is in difficulty and that it is my responsibility to carry a means of attracting attention besides simply waving my arms.

To do this I will take with me :

  • a safety pack.
  • a means of attracting attention at a distance (eg bright flag, flare, waterproof phone)
  • I understand it is my responsibility to attract the attention of the Beach Officer

Practical realities of safety cover. What Lagoon Watersports offers and the importance of taking responsibility for ones own safety

To avoid getting in to difficulties at sea it is my responsibility to :

  • Actively seek advice from Lagoon Watersports staff on the suitability of the conditions and equipment for my ability. It is my responsibility not to
  • exaggerate my ability and therefore cause the staff of Lagoon Watersports to offer incorrect advice.
  • Check the chosen equipment is sea worthy and correctly assembled. If I am uncertain in any way I will ask Lagoon Watersports staff for assistance.
  • Check the weather forecast and tide
  • Inform someone outside of Lagoon Watersports of when I am expected to return.

To enable Lagoon Watersports to monitor my hire session :

I understand I must :

  • Familiarise myself with the sea sailing procdures by reading the Lagoon Joining Pack, signage, members section on website and attending training clincs.
  • Not go more than 500m out to sea
  • Regularly check this information as it can be updated to improve safety
  • Familiarise myself with the sea sailing area 
  • Sign out and back in with the Beach Officer
  • Stay within the Lagoon Watersports hire area

If I find myself drifting downwind or am taken by the current and am unable to return to the beach I launched from after two attempts, I will return to shore and walk back to my starting point. I understand that if I keep drifting down wind it is likely I will require rescuing and drifting out of the hire area makes a rescue harder.

I Agree

I accept that it is my responsibilty to ensure all additional persons within my membership are aware of this.

I Agree

These Disclaimers are valid for 1 year from the date of signing and extends to all persons within my membership.

I Agree

I accept the minimum period of membership is one year. I accept that if I pay by standing order I am liable for the full years membership fee.
