There's also the Southsea side of Langstone harbour entrance, by Hayling ferry.
That works for NE wind if you want flat water/choppy sailing. But the falling tide sluices out through the gap, and so it's better at high water than at low.
For high to mid tide, there a bit of flat water with no current, in 'lock lake'.

I think I will be giving Studland Bay a go tomorrow, NE, low tide 1.3m @ 12:30.

I'm thinking of sailing tomorrow at HISC. It looks on google maps that it could work to give a decent freestyle strip. Has anyone sailed there, is parking etc possible?
Or I could launch from West Wittering...

It's certainly windy out there, and with sunshine. 10 or 11 degrees isn't too bad as an air temperature in late November but watch out for the windchill.
I was hoping to sail today but my van failed its MOT yesterday and I haven't got it back yet.
Plus the NE wind forecast is doing what it often does to the west of Beachy Head – namely blowing more NNE which is well offshore.
The forecast has the wind staying in the current direction , so our hope of an ENE wind which would work for Shoreham seems optimistic.
Hopefully the wind is working for classic NE locations like Pagham and Pevensey.
The north Kent coast is your best bet if you can get there.Main boards: Flare 101, NuEvo 86, UltraKode 80, Reactor 82, NuEvo 73. Powered by Severne Blades and S1s.

It would be great to hear what places did work today – not least because we have more of the same on Friday.
The wind will be a bit lighter on Friday but should also have a bit more E in the NE direction. It stayed NNE on my beach all day on Thursday – and really needs to go more ENE to work well at Shoreham.
ENE is also better for Pevensey, although NE can be OK there.
(I got my van back this evening, so in theory I could drive somewhere for a Friday session.)
It looks like what wind there is starts to ease back on Friday afternoon, and will be much lighter on Saturday.Main boards: Flare 101, NuEvo 86, UltraKode 80, Reactor 82, NuEvo 73. Powered by Severne Blades and S1s.
