What a venue! The Academy opened in 2000 and aimed to promote sailing to all levels of competence and ability.
With direct access to Weymouth Bay waters and Portland Harbour the venue at Osprey Quay will host the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic sailing events. The conditions here are considered near to perfect as it is exposed to winds from all directions, but still sheltered by large waves by Chesil Beach.
To accommodate for the Olympics in addition to the world class facilities already at the venue (conference and meeting facilities, sailing school, boat hoist and storage…) The Olympic Delivery Authority a 220m slipway that is available at all tides and winds as well as and extra 70 berths and extended dingy park with an impressive capacity of 600 boats.
Hope to see you down there on charter!
