Windsurfing / Kitesurfing House
right off little harbor beach
in Wareham, MA-

Our house is perfect for the windsurfing or kitsurfing family - right on the water with a reliable summer thermal: come in, unload your gear, rig it once, enjoy....

Sleeps 8 comfortably, up to 10 (click here for non-windsurfing details, room pictures, rates, calendar,etc or call us at 435 487 9124 or wareham@astie.com)

We are on the water in Little Harbor cove - yards from fabled lLittle Harbor beach on Buzzard's bay. The predominant wind in the summer is on-shore SW flow, reinforced by a local thermal effect ; and by a little ventury effect between 2 hills on either side of the beach. On warms days, we get regularly 15 to 25 knots every afternoon.

You can sail on the cove, right off our lawn about 60% of the time , (due to tide restrictions) - pretty good sailing, as you can see on the first picture. Super flat water, a little gusty, but a lot of fun for a quick sail. It is also a great teaching location as you can see on picture 2 - windy, no waves, not very deep, and enclosed.

Access to Buzzard's bay itself is through the channel that opens up to our cove - see picture 3, you can see our cove and our dock, but the kitesurfers are on the Bay itself. Wade with your board in knee to chest deep water upwind in the channel (see satellite picture below the text) for about 100 yards. On the way back sailing in is easy (downwind :-). Right off the beach you will find a shallow water area going as far as 150 or 200 yards out from the beach, perfect for learning waterstarts and jibes and kitesurfing, with water from mid thigh to shoulder high from mid tide to high tide. Screaming flat water rides guaranteed for the experts.. The water gets to ankle deep at low tide.

Beyond this flat is Buzzard's bay itself, strong wind, nice jumping chop. You can have unlimited reaching contests from the cape cod canal jetty (on the right of the bottom picture, below the text)) to the Wareham channel, several miles....

Back to the house, simply pull your board / rigs onto the lawn, place it in the shade, de-tension your rig, rinse it with our hose - and climb on the deck - you are ready for another day of sailing tomorrow....and if you need anything , Jim Ballantyne's www.sailworld.com is just minutes away on route 28....

Beach combing, swimming, birding, clamming, playing in our own sadnbox etc for the non-sailors...
