Point Clear lies opposite Mersea and sailing across the river is possible in most conditions. The bay provides a good speed sailing area and the river can create a swell catering for all needs. It is possible to sail around the point in NW winds so the area has varied sailing conditions that are suitable for any level of sailor.
