Locations Comments
Bigbury Unknown conditions
Crow Point Onshore. Should be good for blasting and trips up the estuary and across to Instow. Poss gusty.
Daymer Bay Huge wind shadow on beach. Getting out/coming back in very tricky
Exmouth Duck Pond Unknown
Exmouth sea front Excellent on falling tide (wind against current). Steep waves, chop and confused water over sandbar. Steep waves just beyond sandbar. Swells outside. Excellent for port tack jumping. Rides on way in near sandbar
Gwithian Offshore. Gusty, but I've seen people sailing hare at low water.
Kingsbridge Starting to work - shorter reaches but sailable
Marazion Cross-on from L. St Michael's Mount causes wind shadow in the bay, but perfectly sailable.
Roadford Reservoir Should work okay
Saunton Cross-off. Good at low tide.
Stithians Reservoir You're better off down near the dam for a longer reach.
Thurlestone patchy, sheltered. stay at home.
Westward Ho! Pretty much dead offshore.

We have no wind details at all for the following locations:

Carbis Bay
Siblyback Lake
