East Wittering Anything with East is pretty fluky but does provide flat water
Hill Head Cross shore from L. Good
Kimmeridge No details
Lee On Solent Cross shore from L. Good
Lepe Shingle bar to the E produces great flat water blasting/speed course
Lyme Regis Ok, but the Cobb restricts your sailing when trying to get to windward

Poole - Lake Pier Good
Poole - Sandbanks Dead onshore. Unknown conditions
Poole - Stone Island Offshore. Prob quite clean wind
Poole - Whitley Good
Portland Harbour - Ferry Bridge boatyard Cross-on. May still be a little fluky due to Portland
Portland Harbour - OTC/Sailing Academy/Portland end May be a struggle to get out due to restricted space between road and moorings. Will be gusty due a large object called Portland!
