Despite being England's smallest county, Rutland is a major attraction for watersports lovers. This attractive county with stone-built villages and specialist shops is home to Rutland Water. This large reservoir is alive with sailing dinghies, windsurfing and canoeing, and a 25-mile circuit around the edge is popular with cyclists and walkers - but the most fun is to be had on the water.

Rutland Water is a place that truly inspires activity among people of every age and level of experience. The shallow depths and steady winds are perfect for trying out sailing or windsurfing. This action packed reservoir hosts the End of Season championships for the UK's best sailors aged 10-15 and the RYA National Junior Windsurfing Championships.
