With the prevailing wind in your face and the ocean as your playground, Weymouth has the favourable sailing conditions and facilities that make it a world-class venue.

Life on the ocean wave is made even more thrilling under the power of sail

There’s something to be said about experiencing the thrill of competitive sailing as you jibe and tack your way across the ocean. All the while casting an eye on the wind direction as you maneuver the boat whilst wiping away the salty spray of the ocean from your face.

Unless you’re an Olympic skipper who competed in the London 2012 Olympics, you might never get as close to that feeling. But with a constant supply of reliable winds and relatively calm sailing conditions at your beck and call in the waters surrounding Portland Harbour, you’ll certainly be able to follow in the wakes of accomplished sailors that went before you.

And even if you’re new to the sport, the Weymouth and Portland Sailing Academy will instruct you in the finer points of sailing. So regardless of whether you’re piloting a windsurfer or a dart, a laser or a yacht, they’ll help you get best out of your vessel and your sailing experience.
