When the tide goes out at Chalkwell it exposes the Ray. This channel runs from east to west from Southend

Pier to the Two Tree Island at distance of around 2.5 miles. This channel when very windy has some of the flattest water for speed sailing in the world and has hosted many speed sailing contest with windsurfers coming from all over the world to compete on this natural speed strip.

A great area for Windsurfing at Southend-on-Sea is Thorpe Bay, with plenty of room for blasting and with the added bonus of the shallow water at mid tide, this spot is hard to beat.

Windsurfing at Marconi’s Sailing Club

Essex Windsurfing Guide Marconi Sailing Club, The Blackwater

Marconi Sailing Club Windsurf Looking East

Probably one of the best secret spots in Essex for Windsurfing is Marconi’s Sailing Club along the Blackwater Estuary. This is a members only sailing club, but any visiting Windsurfers are welcome to sail as long as you get signed in first. On arrival, stop at the front gates. Walk to the windsurfers rigging area and a member will be more then happy to show you around and let you in. Parking is free, and there is a very large grass rigging area within meters of the shoreline.
