Latest milestone in the development of Exmouth’s new Sideshore watersports centre is celebrated by traditional topping out ceremony

Developer, Grenadier, has celebrated the completion of their Sideshore watersports centre’s steel structure with a topping out ceremony. The new not-for-profit development on Exmouth seafront is expected to be completed by Summer 2020.

Local school children from Brixington Primary Academy joined staff from East Devon District Council, including Deputy Chief Executive Richard Cohen, for a ceremony to mark this key milestone in the construction of the centre. The children left their own legacies by signing a brick with their names and laying it on site, so that they too will be part of this sustainable project.

The much anticipated watersports centre will house world-renowned and family-owned Edge Watersports, and local award-winning celebrity chef Michael Caines.

Designed to be highly sustainable and powered by low-carbon technologies, over the coming months the various parts of the project will be brought together. Once completed, a brand-new watersports centre and multi-use facility, which celebrates the Exmouth seafront and the surrounding area will be unveiled, establishing a go-to destination for visitors and locals alike. 

The centre will be run by Edge Watersports, a team with Olympic prospects and multiple world champion titles between them. The family run business has been instrumental in making Exmouth the go-to kitesurfing destination on the UK. The aim is to give everyone from all walks of life and backgrounds the opportunity to have a go at water sports.

Of course, the centre will also offer the prime spot for anyone to come and witness all the action - even if they don’t want to dip their toes in the water themselves
