Locations Comments
Amroth Dead flat sea. Almost dead offshore winds. Beware of unwanted trip to Lundy Is.
Barry - Cold Knap Not recommended. If you're in the area anyway, try sailing in the old harbour by Barry.
Broad Haven Ideal. Best at LW
Dale Wind funnels down the Gann
Gower - Broughton Bay Cross-on from R. Unknown conditions.
Gower - Llangennith Cross-shore from R. Excellent sailing. One of the best places on the whole S.Wales coast. If little swell flat blasting with wind blown swell further out - good for jumps.

Gower - Oxwich Unknown conditions
Gower - Port Eynon Unknown conditions
Gower - Rhossili Good for wave riding
Gower - Swansea Bay Unknown
Llandegfedd Reservoir OK
Llantwit Major Cross-off. Sheltered by cliffs. Don't do it.
Newgale Excellent. Starboard tack waves.
Ogmore Slightly cross-off. Probably quite gusty, but should be good for wavesailing.
Porthcawl - Newton Beach Gusty, offshore. Not recommended
Porthcawl - Rest Bay cross off shore conditions more testing but still good although can be very unforgiving when a big swell is running - a bit gusty
Porthcawl - Trecco Offshore - unknown conditions
Saundersfoot Cross-shore from L. Very gusty as offshore from main body of land. Wind will increase further out & will take the unwary/unprepared out to sea
Tenby Cross-off. Unknown conditions.
