Slalom 1 - Hayling Island - Beach

Sat 30th - Sun 31st March

Venue

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.

Directions

Racers starting off the beach at a Hayling slalom event.
  • 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.

Parking / Camping

This is a Pay and Display parking area.

"Overnight parking is not officially permitted by Havant Borough Council so our advice, as with the National Windsurfing Festival, is to use your own discretion and common sense. Considerate parking and behaviour hasn't attracted attention here before."
