Scarborough has two beaches separated by the headland and harbour. The result is two radically different windsurfing venues. The south beach is protected from waves and rough seas by the harbour wall and headland. Also, there are no rip tides so beginners should have no problems sailing here. The north beach is completely different. It’s exposed to swells from the N and can be good for wave sailing in strong N and NE. There are rocks to the N of the beach that are covered by water at high tide and is far more suitable for intermediates.

Ideal Wind: N – SE
