About The Fludges

There are three distinct launch sites at Felixstowe. The one to choose depends on the wind direction, but in general the NE-most site (known locally as "The Fludges") is the most popular. Park on the roadside (free) near the toilet block. The SW-most site is the next most popular.. Note that you cannot drive from the centre site to the Fludges site without driving slightly inland.

There can be a very nasty side-shore rip at the Fludges site, caused by water entering or exiting the River Deben. Be very wary of this, as it often means rigging at least 1m larger sail than you think to counteract the lack of apparent wind. Beginners should use the SW-most site instead!
