Rhossili

Back to location finder

General details:

Near large cliff, so wind not so good, especially if its from any southerly directions. (Only sail in Northerly or North Westerly.)

[Personally, I'm not convinced that Rhossili is sensibly sailable - 'though it's so long since I was there, I don't remember. Looking at the map, it seems there are tall cliffs to the South, a fairly serious climb down to the beach (and back up again!!), Worms Head - with its serious rips about 1/2 mile away, and a sea that goes out for miles - MF]
