Bough Beech Reservoir is a great place to windsurf with a prevailing South West wind direction which is good for blasting off the beach at the Club House; and it has an approximate sailing area of one mile by half a mile which is ideal for fast reaches. Light wind days are fine for beginners and those wanting to practice freestyle; and windier days offer the chance to challenge the GPS speed record. Windsurfers have full use of all the Club House facilities and galley, as well as rescue boat cover at weekends and bank holidays.
We are a friendly group of windsurfers who keep in touch via WhatsApp; and we are always very pleased to be able to welcome new members.
We can normally be found at the Club most weekends and Bank Holidays from March through to the end of October; and if the wind proves irresistible, then the occasional hardy souls also venture out during the winter months. If the wind is good we can windsurf any day with permitted sailing (see club opening times) using the buddy system when rescue boat cover is not available. Once a month we meet for an informal windsurf skills session which gives the less experienced members the chance to benefit from tips from our more experienced sailors, many of whom are instructors or ex-instructors.
Most of us have their own kit; however, the Club has six Starboard Rios with a variety of rig sizes which can be hired for minimal cost. Some of the club kit is also suitable for juniors according to their age and height. Members are more than happy to arrange for informal instruction and we run more formal courses on request.
If you are interested in Windsurfing at Bough Beech sailing club please contact our Windsurfing Captain or ask anyone you see with a windsurfer at the club. We all look forward to seeing you at Bough Beech.
