Port Edgar Watersports (PEW) CIC is the largest watersports and activity centre in Scotland. From sailing to powerboating, from beginners to advanced -  it has been established to help get people of all ages out on the water. The people at PEW CIC are passionate about watersports and their dedicated staff ensure a warm welcome and a high quality experience for everyone.
 
Its underlying mission for the future is to create the opportunity for everyone to live a healthy lifestyle through participation in watersports and their business ethos reflects both their infectious passion for watersports and, at the same time, delivering social, environmental and economic outcomes through the following activities:
 
Education - Apart from the obvious nautical knowledge aspects, for many people sailing can also be about self-development, confidence, overcoming personal challenges & learning life skills for the future.
 
Social - The sailing and watersports’ community is well known for being friendly & welcoming; it is a place to meet people, make friends and share the experience.
 
Creative - Watersports can take a morning to learn and a lifetime to master, inspire and be inspired by like-minded people with common goals & interests.
 
Community - The Centre is a place for young people, adults and the elderly where experience can be shared, enjoyed and passed on - a place to become involved in the heart of their community.
 
Equal Opportunity - Our Centre will continue to make our services available and accessible to everyone including those with physical or mental disabilities.  We will invest in the equipment and resources required to ensure this support forms a core part of our strategy.
 
Social Enterprise
Port Edgar Watersports CIC is a social enterprise - passionate about offering watersports opportunities to everyone. The assets are locked in to the business and any profits generated will be used to upgrade equipment and fund opportunities for people with physical and learning disabilities.
