About the OTC
The OTC provides the unique opportunity to try and compare the boards and sails from all the major windsurfing brands, just as the equipment’s designers would have wished them to be used. This means that all the sails are rigged on their desired high carbon-content mast, and the boards maintained to the highest standard, racked by brand for easy distinction. There will be in excess of 85 boards and 100 sails stocked in the centre, providing more than enough to go round for beginner, intermediate and expert sailors, even when the centre is running at capacity.
Can I bring my own equipment?
Yes of course you can!!
If you have your own equipment we recommend that you bring it along. Its always nice to use your own stuff and this weekend will be a perfect opportunity to ask the experts on rigging and tuning.
About the location
Flat water windsurfing arenas don’t come much better than Portland Harbour. It has some of the best wind statistics of the south coast of England, is accessible in all wind directions and tide states, and can cater for all abilities, from the complete beginner to the seasoned speed fanatic or freestyle maestro. The legacy of Weymouth Speed Week – one of the longest running annual windsurfing competitions in the world, is testament to just how special a stretch of water Portland Harbour is for windsurfing. The location that has it all, making windsurfing applicable for everyone.
The other stuff…….
Weymouth and Portland have a great deal to shout about, from the only World Heritage Coastline in the UK with breath-taking coastal paths, to vast sheltered family beaches … and a whole host of activities to keep the most energetic visitor coming back for more. A short trip from London, Portland Harbour played host to the sailing classes of the 2012 Olympic Games, and is sure to provide a lasting legacy for the area for many years to come.
