Shoeburyness is a very popular resort during the summer and some days have seen as many as 150 people on the water which could be a problem if you are learning, and need plenty of space to manoeuvre. However, East beach can be sailed two and a half hours either side of high tide and is perfect in NE winds, which are cross shore.
