The watersports tuition and sailing equipment hire service, formerly known as Gwent Adventures, now operates from the brand new Watersports Centre at Llandegfedd Reservoir, offering one of the best sailing experiences South Wales has to offer.

Whatever floats your boat you can enjoy the thrill of the open water in a variety of ways at Llandegfedd. We provide land and water based activities, team-building, windsurfing, dinghy sailing, stand-up paddleboarding, canoeing, kayaking, raft building, equipment hire and environmental studies.

The main advantages of sailing at Llandegfedd is that the reservoir offers clean, drinkable deep water with no weed issues. It's convenient to major population centres like Cardiff and Newport, yet we offer a peaceful and rural environment. And best of all... no tides!

Llandegfedd Reservoir is located in the heart of beautiful countryside spanning the border of Monmouthshire and Torfaen in South Wales. It forms a 434 acre lake, which is 1.5 miles long and 1 mile wide at the widest point. The entire site has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to its richness in wildlife.

All our programmes are organised around the requirements of each group, which can include a combination of fun activities or courses to achieve National Governing Body qualifications. Gwent Adventures is a fully recognised Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Teaching Establishment and is also licenced by the Adventure Activities Licencing Authority (AALA). All Instructors are fully qualified in their respective watersports.

We offer a full multi-activity watersports programme during school holidays for children (aged 8+) and young people in sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and kayaking.
