The long sandy beach at Clacton-on-Sea provides good conditions for beginners at low tide, as the water is shallow for up to 60 metres. At high tide the conditions are more favourable for more experienced sailors and a good swell is created by NE winds. There is a good rigging area on the beach and the site is often used by the PWA. It is a good idea to watch the locals, as they will know where the best sailing areas are. One such point is a long sandbar revealed by low tides, which can be an easy area to learn in as well as being excellent for speed sailing. It is possible to unload your kit on the beach before parking in the large car park 100 yards away.
