After the round the island race on Friday, Hayling Island will then host the first slalom event of the season over the weekend. Check out the must know info from the UKWA below and head to their website here for more details.
The Hayling Seafront is primarily a shingle beach above the high tide mark, with long stretches of sand below this line. About a third of the beach is protected by groynes. West Beach is Haylings most popular beach, and designated a windsurfing area. At high tide the waters can get deep quickly with the shelving of the beaches, at low tide the waters are usually shallow.
- From the A27, take the Havant/Hayling exit.
- Head south on the A3023 on to Hayling island.
- At Mill Rythe roundabout (approx 2 miles from bridge ) take right exit.
- At Beachlands roundabout (approx 1 mile) take right exit After approx 1/2 mile, left just west of the bottom of Staunton Avenue.
