Weymouth Bay and Portland Harbour together provide some of the best small boat sailing waters on the planet. The combination of clean winds, weak tidal conditions, the large enclosed harbour at Portland and the more open conditions of Weymouth Bay, create waters that are unsurpassed for small boat sailing.
The Academy is used by a wide range of ages and abilities, from children and first-time sailors to Olympic athletes. Team GBR has decided to use the facility as their main training base in the run up to the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and beyond.
This facility was the first project to be completed for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
