When it blows easterly the 'dream reach' truly is a dream, as the right hand side of the channel is arrow straight straight for almost a mile.

On south westerly through to north westerly the preferred area is further out on the left hand side of the channel where the angle kinks round a bit and there is a straight section a similar length to the run down the wall at WK.  Closer in to shore on the left hand side the channel shore weaves in and out a bit so the water is not as flat as above.

You launch from the section of beach next to the pier.

A local byelaw prohibits sailing of the channel area at high tide so the channel is sailable from two hours before to two hours after low tide - so a good 4 hours sailing.

For where to park see :

If you park on the bays on the promenade you can rig up on the wide tarmac covered prom in front of your vehicle. If all spaces are taken (or if the wind is nuclear) you can park at weekend  in the courthouse car park across the road and rig up on the nice grassy area beside the carpark, but you do need to carry your rig across the road to the beach.''
