Sail like an Olympian in Weymouth and Portland

Weymouth and Portland, Dorset

Take to the waters in Weymouth and Portland and discover what it takes to be an Olympic sailor.

As the host venue for the sailing events of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the waters provide the perfect setting for sailing, angling and diving.  

Opt to sail with a team of highly qualified instructors and coaches from the Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy. There are also plenty of opportunities to try out a new activity, learn a new watersport, or take a white-knuckle boat ride out in Weymouth Bay.

For more land-based activities why not try rock climbing, paragliding, hiking, cycling or pony trekking.  The countryside and cliffs provide the ideal locations for these and many more activities.

After a day of activity, relax with a well deserved meal at a nearby restaurant or a pint at the pub, overlooking the mighty sweep of Chesil Beach.
