North Devon and flat water! This is probably the only speed track on the SW peninsula’s north coast. It only works in strong winds, force eight and above which blow across the sand flats. The result is mirror flat water and serious speed! If all the other beaches are blown out and Crow Point on wind over tide, this will probably still be sailable.
Getting there: Heanton is on the Barnstable / Braunton road (A361). The road goes right along the bank of the River Taw at this point
Ideal Wind: Strong W
Accommodation: Braunton / Barnstaple
