welcome to the N/E!   Get on the water at the right place and the right time and you'll get some epic sailing in, just watch on here for people heading out.

This is a pretty good website if you want to know more about the places:  http://www.northumberlandlife.org/nwindsurfclub/Page1.asp

Hi Anna,

Welcome to the north east.

Keep an eye on the forecast and as soon as there is wind on the horizon
there will be activity on the forum regarding sailing plans.

What kind of sailing/location are you looking for?

Hi Anna - Welcome to the NE. You've found the right place for sea sailing, just keep an eye on the forum and as soon as it's windy, you'll find somebody out sailing.

Wheres the best spot for wave sailing?

Best thing to do is have a look on here as soon as some wind is forecast.
There will be a flurry of activity as soon as a bit of a blow is forecast...

You don't really get good wave conditions up here very often, some say you get better at Alonby on the Cumbrian west coast, but that's a 4 hour/ 160 mile round trip. When it's working Druridge Bay, Alnmouth, Boulmer and Bamburgh/Budle are probably the best with Beadnell or Boulmer(again)for flat sea water.

Hi Anna
Welcome.
Mouth of Budle gives the best down the line conditions.
In a Westerly, conditions are cross off and can get quite big if a Northerly swell has been present for a few days.
As the boys suggest- keep an eye out for wind and you will see a flurry of activity on here, usually debating the best place to sail in a given direction- then we end up at D-Bay!!
