Sandy Point


Located on the Gippsland coast about 2 hours drive from Melbourne, Sandy Pt. is a bit of a windsurfing "Mecca". This is where the world sailing speed record was set by Yellow Pages Endeavour and is the site of numerous Australian windsurfing speed records. Shallow inlet where the sailing takes place is a long shallow estuary with a thin sand spit separating it from the windy waters of Bass Strait. It is an excellent spot for slalom or speed sailing and a number of these sort of events are run here during the year. The local caravan park has some on site accommodation but be sure to phone them to check. The local pub is about 15 minutes drive away in Fish Ck. Closest windsurfing shops to my knowledge are in Melbourne.
