The coasts of the United Kingdom have been the birthplace of many legendary seafarers, and continue to be home to large communities of sailing addicts. In fact, the spots are as numerous as they are varied and the conditions are often just right. If you are not afraid of cold water, exceptional sessions are waiting for you.
To begin with, Scotland and its mysterious charm conceals some superb places to discover. Troon Beachoffers an immense flat and windy stretch of water, perfect for the practice of kite foil, wing foil, wake foil or wind foil, accessible simply by the sandy beach, in addition to all the facilities of a maritime town. Similarly, Portland Harbour in the south of England offers a flat, protected playground. The city has become accustomed to hosting sliding championships and their community, also offering all kinds of activities, including sailing schools. If you are lucky, you will be able to sail alongside the dolphins that regularly visit the bay. Among the less well-known spots for the general public are real gems on this southern coast of England. From the East, we start withCamber Sands. Less than two hours from London, the spot offers a side wind known for its regularity, which easily takes 10 knots as soon as the thermals rise. Its open water area has long been known for kite surfing and is becoming more and more popular for wing and surf foil. Then come two islands. The famous Isle of Wight, wild, impressive, magnificent and full of spots still unknown to the public. As sandy and easy as Wight is rocky and technical, Haylingoffers a flat stretch of water with very easy access to the water. The practice of foil is so popular here that the city’s website uses photos of it on the cover! Finally, Exmouth is full of sailing clubs, and this is no coincidence. The town offers an exceptional stretch of water which has already conquered several exceptional kitesurfers who have made it their almost exclusive spot.
Should you feel the urge to get away from the hustle and bustle of the ports, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is the place to be. Visible from your SUP, its magnificent wild cliffs plunging into an emerald sea will make for an exceptional stay, in contact with unique local flora and fauna.
