United Kingdom for sailors
The British Isles are very well known among sailors as their coastlines create perfect spots for boat adventures. There is no doubt that sailing is very popular in that country, and for many it is not only a hobby but a true passion. The coasts of the Great Britain and Ireland are filled with marinas, but it should be noted that not all of them are of the best quality. However, there are about 150 purpose-built marines which usually keep some berths for visiting yachts.
When it comes to the weather sailors should be prepared to almost everything, as it is very changeable. Summer seems to be the best time for sailing as it is usually warm, while spring brings rain and lower temperatures. In Scotland weather can be even more unpredictable and it can change in one day. Experience shows that May and June are the best months for sailing there, as the temperature rises above 20 degrees Celsius.
The best sailing spots in the UK
It is really hard to pick just a few spots from so many beautiful locations, where sailors can admire incredible landscapes and just have a good time. However, there are some places which became very popular and seems to be perfect for everyone.
The Scilly Isles are one of the best holiday destination for sailors who want to spend some time on a peaceful island. Springs and summers are warm and very sunny, while waters that surround the islands are quite energetic. That’s what make this spot just perfect for sailing. The Scilly Isles have also a lot to offer for tourists who get off the boat and decide to explore their attractions. You should definitely take a walk on St. Mary or any other island as the views are stunning. And when you get tired you may drink coffee or eat lunch in some café or a restaurant on the trail. You should also try some water sports like diving or windsurfing and do some sightseeing as the islands hide many historic buildings and interesting landmarks.
The Solent is a strait that separates the Isle of Wright from the mainland. It is about 30 miles long and thanks to the fact that waters there are usually calm it is one of the best places to learn to sail. You will find there multiple sailing clubs and lots of attractions along the coast. You may admire breathtaking landscapes from the boat and then spend some time on the land where tourists can visit Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport, climb on Spinnaker Tower to observe the views of Portsmouth Harbour or go to one of the country parks.
Cornwall is another spot in the UK which is valued by sailors. It has the largest regional coastline in England and gives sailors many different opportunities, as there are 9 river estuaries and 4 sailing lakes. The North Coast seems to be more challenging than the South. Besides sailing, Cornwall has a lot to offer to the visitors, including incredible landscapes, historic sites and many opportunities to spend your free time actively. It’s a great place to stay with a family, as both adults and children will definitely find interesting attractions to enjoy themselves. Holidays in Cornwall are never boring and sailing there may be a pure pleasure.
