London has a few windsurfing centres but do they offer what we do

If you live within the M25, or surrounding areas, then you probably have to drive to get to your nearest windsurfing centre, either with your own or some rental kit.

What's it like to windsurf around london

London has a few watersports centres

When you think windsurfing, you don’t think London, but there’s a few centres available to you if you can’t get down to the coast.

Lakes and reservoirs are the usual option, all within the M25 and some just on the outskirts, often providing rental kit and facilities like a clubhouse.

Some of the clubs include: Docklands Sailing and Watesports Centre, Wimbledon Park Watersports and Outdoor Centre, WHSC – Welsh Harp Sailing & Windsurfing Club, East London Windsurfing School,  King George Sailing Club, AquaSports, Queen Mary Sailing Club to name a few.

I’d imagine that living the London life has its pros, but for me a big drawback, must be the limited sailing options and conditions, especially for the more advanced windsurfers..

What's it like to sail in london compared to bracklesham or chichester harbour

I don’t live in London anymore, but can tell you with authority that it’s not possible to do a general comparison as the options are are different.

In London, you will only find the ability to use bigger slalom style kit for advanced sailors or the general beginner kit for others.

The winds at inland sailor centres is often less and more gusty as it blows over land, whilst the condition we get on the coast in West Sussex are way more favourable.

Our own windsurfing school down here in Bracklesham, gets some amazing conditions for both beginner windsurfing lessons and advanced wave sailors.


What can we offer

Windsurfing at Bracklesham and in Chichester Harbour offers some amazing conditions and our lessons take advantage of them all.

We’re about 1hr 30 from the bottom of the M25, which isn’t that far when you consider the conditions you’ll get on a good day.

The different spots we have available, means we can do something in most conditions for beginner to advanced sailor.

When you’re starting out, we look at spots in Chichester Harbour which can offer flat water and lighter winds, whilst our more advanced sailors will be looking at somewhere like Bracklesham Bay.
