Savannah beginner sites?

Question from one of our North Carolina brethren

Quote:
Hi I have a beginner ws friend who is going to be in Savannah in a couple of weeks.

Are there any sites suitable for a beginner (maybe 5 times on a board but can tack in light wind).

Do you have any advice or recommendations?

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Re: Savannah beginner sites?

I’ve sailed off Tybee Island a few times. Be careful about parking though. You have to pay or you will get ticketed. I also bought a cheap hose sprayer to rinse sand off my equipment.
1) Tybee Creek on the West side at the boat ramp on Alley Street. I worried a bit about gators but then there were dolphins swimming there.
2) Polk Street Access on North side. Long walk. Sort of protected from the ocean. Parked near water treatment plant.
3) Southernmost point. Parked on 19th street and walked gear over the dunes either to Tybee Creek side or Ocean side. Beware of tidal current! I lost a hat out to sea there.
4) Beach side off 2nd Ave. Parked past Sugar Shack. I walked over the dune bridge and rigged on the beach, carried sail back and derigged by the car.
5) Fort Screven Beach. Looong walk to beach.
You can also check for advice at High Tide Surf shop. It's on the right just after you get in to Tybee.
