Weymouth Coaching Clinics

Weymouth coaching clinics offer a great chance to get away to the coast in a safe, flat, windy location with a high level of service from the team at The Official Test Centre (OTC). It’s all about friendly, supported, social windsurfing in a maximum group size of 6. The level is intermediate to early-advanced and is suitable for:

  • Shared experiences - enjoying our sport with others
  • Regular windsurfers
  • Occasional windsurfers
  • Those who want some professional guidance after periods of self-learning
  • Those who want to get their season off to a positive start
  • Those who want to try a new location
  • Those who are looking at getting back into the sport after time away
  • Advanced windsurfers who, despite using smaller freewave boards on the coast, would benefit from re-focusing on basics such as improved tacking, non-planing gybing, heli-tacks and other essentials to generally up the game
  • Advanced windsurfers who would like the opportunity to obtain GoPro 7 Black stills or footage of them windsurfing at full-speed from a mast/boom-mounted Flymount, K4 Harness Mount or a head-mount on Simon who can track closely from behind for a unique look at the action!

These clinics will only run when forecasts of suitable conditions are confirmed during the few days before (no one wants to turn up for zero wind or gales).

Booking and pricing

The cost is:

  • £210 per 2-day clinic including 2 days of unlimited kit hire
  • £105 per 2-day clinic using all your own kit

As soon as a piece of OTC kit is used then the kit hire day rate is payable. Both clinics can be booked for a 4-day back-to-back Saturday-Tuesday getaway.

Candidates arrange their own transport and accommodation. Please book accommodation that can be cancelled without penalty as the weekends will not run in unsuitable conditions such stormy or windless weather. Popular choices are RYA Portland House, YHA Portland, Hotel Aqua, Portland Lodge, Heights Hotel, Weymouth Camping and Caravanning Park, local B+Bs or Airbnb. A decision will usually be made either way on the Wednesday before. A social meal will be arranged locally for the first night for those who wish to participate (Saturday for weekend clinics and Monday for Monday/Tuesday clinics). This will usually be at The Boat That Rocks restaurant in Portland Marina but may be elsewhere.
