Balmoral

Haven't got a lot to say about Balmoral. I go down to the end of the Esplanade and rig up on the grass in the bottom right hand corner of the second map below. Unfortunately it costs to park at the end of this road, but you can't put in any where else on the beach so you don't have much choice. The rest of the beach has floating buoys which stay something to the effect of "windsurfers and sailcraft stay away". The water is pretty clean (unless there has been a storm recently), but looking at the maps I realised why I find it so difficult getting out. The beach is probably less than 400 metres long and on a short board you can only head up wind about 20 degrees...
