About The Academy
WPNSA officially opened on 1st April 2000, with residence taken up in the converted ex-naval offices, whilst the plans for the new Academy were taking shape.
The clubhouse was opened officially in June 2005 and includes 30 pontoons, new slipways and much expanded room for boat storage and car parking.
The academy has excellent shower, toilet and changing facilities. In addition there is a cafe style restaurant with free wi-fi including use of two computers. A viewing deck overlooks the harbour.
There is no grass for rigging and although large carpet mats have been installed these soon get full so a rigging mat is always a good idea.
The slipways at Weymouth are generally extreamly slippy, so extra care should always be taken especially at low water.

NB: Overnight camping is not always available at this location, if the event information above does not mention it, please ask. If it is available: As you enter the Sailing Academy overnight camping is located in the large car park on your right. Conveniently kit can easily be carried to the rigging area and slipways just accross the access road. Trailers can be left in the trailer park before parking. There is a small charge made by the academy for overnight camping. Drinking water is avaiable nearby. Many pitches now have electric hook up. There must be one clear vehicle gap between each vehicle, in other words every other space must be left empty. Failure to comply will cause YOU much inconverience.
