The Liverpool Watersports Centre has been awarded funding by the 1851 Trust to give free sailing lessons to children in Merseyside. 500 places are available for students aged 11 to 14 years old, at schools located within 15 miles of the Centre, based at Queens Dock.
A rather large visitor was spotted at the centre over the weekend
Over 300 school children are heading to the Liverpool Watersports Centre this week to learn how to swim safely in open water. Swimming in open water can be more dangerous than swimming in a pool and Swim Safe training equips children aged 7-14 with the knowledge and skills they need to avoid having to be rescued from a dangerous situation.
Have you used Liverpool Watersports Centre in the last 2 years? We would like to hear from you as we're collecting feedback about the facilities at the centre. We're looking for feedback from individuals and groups who use the centre - whether it's regularly or as a one off. The survey will take just 5 minutes and your feedback will be used to help us plan for improvements at the centre.
Liverpool Watersports Centre is holding a Dock 2 Dock Swim on the 21st July with a variety of lengths from 2-10K. We are looking for people who would like to take on the challenge and raise sponsorship for a Local Solutions project.
The wheelyboat was officially launched
A brand new wheelchair accessible powerboat will be launched this afternoon at the Liverpool Watersports Centre. This will be the first fully accessible powerboat at the centre, strengthening existing provisions for people with disabilities. Local Solutions has worked in partnership with the Wheelyboat Trust to fundraise for the boat, to enable people with mobility impairments the ability to participate fully in water-based activities at the centre.
