My recollection of windsurfing at Poole Harbour a few years ago is that it too is quite shallow?
Poole Harbour is definitely not the place to practice capsizing. Kathy and I capsized in the middle of the harbour many years ago and I sent her round to other side of the boat to collect the jib sheet. She dutifully swam around, threw the jib sheet over, then swam back, only to realise that I had been standing on the bottom all the time!
