Following Government guidance on the importance of social distancing in slowing down the spread of the Covid-19 virus we at Horseshoe Lake have made the difficult decision to not reopen as planned on March 30th. We had hoped to open with strict distancing rules in place but we feel this isn’t possible or even morally responsible for both our customers or our staff. The closure will be for the foreseeable future but will be under constant review in line with Government recommendations please see our website and social media for updates.
Customers that have already booked activities with Horseshoe Lake will be contacted in due course by our staff to explain the different options available to them.
We would also like to take this time to offer our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to all of the staff working for the NHS and to the key workers that are supporting them in this extremely difficult time. We know a number of you are regular customers of ours and we can't thank you enough for what you are doing.
Thank you all for your continuous support and once we do re open we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible healthy and well enjoying our wonderful environment.
Kindness of the staff at Horseshoe Lake.
'Ever since I began sailing I knew that I would love it and even when I first got out on the Topaz with the person I was sailing with (Artur) and we capsized instantly Loz helped us back up and in the end we had a very good time because of the kindness of the staff at Horseshoe Lake.'
Thanks to my extremely helpful instructors
'When I first started sailing, at stage 1, I struggled to get to grips with sailing but one year in I am going for my stage 3. Thanks to my extremely helpful instructors who have guided my through the stages. I had no idea of what to expect when I came to sailing for the first time but now i feel like i have found a new hobby'
I have enjoyed my time sailing from stage 0 to reach stage 3
'I have enjoyed my time sailing from stage 0 to reach stage 3. When I first started, I only had a little bit of experience sailing catamarans on a French bay. When I first started, I wasn't very confident on the water and kept capsizing but when i reached stage 1, I had learnt sail settings and tacking. By stage 2 I had improved on those skills and now on stage 3 I have learnt how to gybe 'properly' and how to use a gybe, and how to hove to (stop) and pick up a mooring. I thank Loz and Aidan for the patience when i was misbehaving and not trying my hardest.'
