LEISURE management company Parkwood Leisure has acquired Girls for Sail, the UK's only all-female sailing school dedicated to teaching women to sail, as part of its continued expansion in the outdoors leisure sector.
The acquisition will support the growth of Girls for Sail, which was established in 1999 to encourage more women to participate in sailing, and continues Parkwood Leisure’s growth strategy as it diversifies outside of its core leisure management business and expands its Parkwood Outdoors brand.
Head of Parkwood Outdoors Chris True said: “Welcoming Girls for Sail to our portfolio of outdoor leisure sites marks a pivotal time in the development of Parkwood Outdoors.
“The sailing school is a perfect choice in terms of its unique learning platform and shares our commitment to contributing to physical, personal and social education through outdoor activities.
“We are dedicated to investing in the continued growth of Parkwood Leisure’s outdoors business and developing the high-quality offering of our estate. Over the next 12 months, we look forward to expanding opportunities for Girls for Sail and bringing the benefits of outdoor physical activity to an even wider audience.”
