University Watersports Centre

Watersports in Southampton are extremely popular due to the proximity of Southampton Water, the Solent and Cowes on the Isle of Wight. Situated on the River Itchen, the University’s Watersports centre is ideally placed as a platform for river-based, inshore and offshore courses and training.
