Described as the third windiest sailing area of Britain, Crosby is not really a suitable beach for beginners. At high tide the water becomes deep enough for ships to travel through so the water can become crowded. There can also be strong currents at high tide so sailors must be competent with water starting. However, the sea conditions can be good bump and jump and there aren’t many waves if you are at all worried about your wave sailing technique.
