The South West has plenty of opportunities for water sports. We are encouraging our partners to help people take to the water with a new water recreation strategy, Enjoying Water.
How will it work?
Enjoying Water comes as a result of a ground breaking study in the south west aimed at putting local opportunities at the heart of future plans to develop water based sport and recreation.
Enjoying Water gives advice to local authorities, helping them to identify under used areas when planning new recreation facilities.
We are confident the new strategy will provide low cost, local opportunities so that everyone can experience a wide variety of water activities, leading to a healthier lifestyle and a healthier environment.
What are the benefits?Enjoying Water highlights the need for more local opportunities for recreation. So we sponsored some recreation taster sessions during Weymouth and Portland's Maritime Festival, Spirit of the Sea
