About us

Simon and Katrina set up the sailing school in the 1990s and the school was very popular with local people and visitors alike. Learn to sail courses, learn to powerboat courses, and of course, the very successful ‘Seals’ kids club meant that the sailing school became a staple attraction for the area. A combination of various factors resulted in the school being mothballed, in the hope that it would be resurrected in the future.

Jane and Niall Campbell Morrison took over the former sailing school from Simon and Katrina Paterson in late 2023 and created Findhorn Watersports. Jane and Niall are keen to provide opportunities for as many different people as possible to participate in watersports and to enjoy the Blue Space as a way of improving both physical and mental health.

Findhorn Watersports is currently under construction; however, the intention is to upgrade the building and the boat parking for the dinghies being used. The building will contain 3 changing rooms, a drying room, a lecture room, an office and a reception area. There will also be an outdoor space under cover for use as a lecture or lunch area.

Jane Campbell Morrison MBE is a very experienced RYA Dinghy and Powerboat Trainer, with some 30 years of experience in delivering training at all levels in sailing and powerboating across Scotland, as well as in sports development. She is a well kent face in Scottish boating, bringing a passion and desire for everyone and anyone to get out on the water and to enjoy the benefits that the Blue Space can bring.

Niall Campbell Morrison is an avid powerboater as well as being the key fixer of all things boating and the main person in ensuring that the boat stays upright when sailing with Jane in their RS400 ‘Valentine’.

The staff team being recruited to deliver the activities currently planned will have instructional qualifications from the Royal Yachting Association and from British Canoeing as a minimum.

Findhorn Watersports has applied for accreditation from the Royal Yachting Association to allow us to deliver RYA certificated courses.
