Sail the Wash

Sail the Wash is an introduction to the sailing opportunities, facilities for visiting craft and great places to visit when coming to the Wash on England's east coast.

The Wash is an area of outstanding natural beauty and is a designated European Marine Site. It is England's largest embayment and contains extensive sand-flats and salt-marshes. It is home to a diverse habitat of marine mammals, shellfish, wildfowl and many other migratory birds.

It is fed by four rivers, which drain a vast hinterland stretching from Bedford, Northampton and Market Harborough up to Grantham. The interlinking inland waterways offer navigation to suitable craft over a wide area and even links into the Grand Union Canal.
