Poole Harbour – Sandbanks

Overview: The Best Beginner/Intermediate spot around with gentle slopping beach which means that you can still stand a long way out! Our members can get great deals on hire & tuition with The Watersports Academy. The windspeed here is typically the fastest around, matched only by Weymouth.

Suitable for: All Levels

Best Wind Directions: All direction but NE

Tides: Sailable at all points of the tide, longest walk out at low tide

Local Knowledge/Warnings: Its advisable to wear booties as there are a couple of mussel banks and submerged chunks of iron, which are not great to step on. The rest of the harbour bed is mostly sand.

Campus Commute: 50 mins

Local Windsurfing Shop: The Watersports Academy
