The Club is nestled just below Culver Down on the right hand side of Sandown and is situated very close to a lovely, gently sloping sandy beach (although when the tide is out it is not very close to the sea!). The whole bay encompasses the resort towns of Sandown and Shanklin, has cliffs at both ends with approximately 4 miles of sandy beach between.

The Bay itself was voted the best bay on the South coast and with predominately South Westerly winds (cross-shore) and a South East-facing beach a Force 4 can mean a relatively flat sea. With very little boat traffic, very few moored boats and a maximum tidal speed of 2 knots it offers fantastic sailing. The beach itself is used by lots of people both on and off the water. The activities range from dog walking and sun bathing to Kitesurfing. If you prefer something more sedate then a walk to the top of Culver Down will reward you with breath taking views across Sandown Bay to Shanklin on one side or Bembridge and the mainland in the distance.
