The National Watersports Festival (NWF) is a three-day stand-up paddleboard and windsurfing festival which annually attracts up to 500 competitors and around 10,000 spectators. Billed as the UK’s largest multi-discipline watersports festival the 2017 edition of the event will see the NWF move from Hayling Island, near Portsmouth to Rutland Water in the East Midlands.
The NWF promises a spectacular three day, non-stop festival of racing, taster sessions for beginners, pro Team Riders and pros, floodlit freestyle displays, clinics, live music and partying, well into the night! There are even fireworks from gliders, thanks to AEROSparx who performed for the Queen and will be creating quite a spectacle at NWF’17.
The event is regarded as ‘the peoples’ festival’ as everyone races side by side; beginners with legends of the sports, including Olympic medalists who love the event as much as complete rookies. Everyone is welcome regardless of experience, their ‘kit’ or what their van looks like!’ And if you haven’t got any kit, you can borrow it!
