Baie de Figari

Corsica
This beautiful bay is a popular training venue; broad sections are standing-depth, the water’s warm, and a westerly thermal regularly delivers Force 4 winds; only easterly gets very gusty. If you can waterstart, head straight out of the bay to let off some steam in the bigger chop further out. There's busy traffic in this narrow gulf – beginners, pleasure boats and jet-skis can sometimes cause confusion. Also pay attention to four rocks lurking just underwater in the middle of the bay; they’re marked by buoys, but only in summer. The best launch for windsurfing is at the surf-school. Kiters have to carry their kit 15 minutes south. The eastern car-park is height restricted; campervan drivers have to look west.
