Bring your wetsuits, harness, wetsuit booties, sunblock, all weather gear, a pack lunch and plenty of fluid to keep hydrated. If we're sailing from Hayling seafront, bring £6 (coins) for the car park.

 

Location & Meeting Up

Essentially we use two different locations depending on the course level, conditions and state of tide. We'll let you know which one is for your course. Should there be a change of location we'll let you know prior to the course.

 

Esso Beach, Langstone Harbour
Half a mile after going over Hayling bridge you'll see an Esso petrol station. Right next to the petrol station is a small lane which takes you a car park over looking the harbour. This works perfectly for high tide sessions. There are no facilities at this location, so use the toilet at the Esso or Texaco petrol station.

Hayling Seafront
We use the seafront for low tide days, because it forms a large flat water lagoon. We meet at the end of the car park, right past the Inn on the Beach at the end of the beach huts next to the golf course. Don't forget to bring some coins for parking meter. We launch in front of the golf course.

Testimonials

Thanks to you , I feel a lot more comfortable planning in choppy conditions now (and may even shorten my harness lines more – and NOT grip the boom so tightly when hooked in). Then back to working on my gybes"

Dave Taylor

"That's great thank you. It was having the back hand as far back as I could stretch made all the difference and changing the feet earlier. It makes such a difference now as I'm not getting as tired and its makes a huge difference on the wave board in wave conditions."

Doug Jack

Neil and I had such a fantastic holiday, so thank you for everything. We will definitely go back if we get the opportunity

Sarah & Neil

Thanks again for some fantastic advice and training in Grafham. The fast tack is ace

Graham O'Riley

"Thanks for a great couple of days training. I really enjoyed it and got a lot out of it. We were so lucky with the conditions. I feel as if I now know what to do when tacking - although need to spend more time practising. The early planning instruction definitely helped. And I made progress with the gybing rig rotation - keeping the clew upwind and 'kissing the guns' definitely my gybes at the end of the afternoon."
