Mete­oro­logists predict that Summer 2019 is going to be excep­ti­onally fair in the UK so if you're starting to plan your summer holiday, consider including one of these top 4 UK destinations in your itinerary.

Dartmouth, Devon

Since the 17th century, Dartmouth has been globally-recognised as a 'key player' on the regatta circuit. Sail down the meandering length of the River Dart, which runs through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that is simply breat­htaking. At the mouth of the river are towering dramatic cliffs which offer spectacular vantage points.

Norfolk Broads, Norfolk

The extensive waterways that make up the Norfolk Broads are a sailor's dream, with clean, clear water and a notable absence of locks. Glide slowly along, enjoying the relaxed pace of life that charac­te­rises this part of the world. Along the way, you'll find plenty of places to moor up, allowing you to explore market towns, country pubs and picturesque villages.

Pwllheli, Wales

Pwllheli, a bustling and busy coastal town, is the unofficial capital of the Llŷn Peninsula and is noted for being a European Centre of Excellence for sailing. The area has the mildest climate in Wales, offering stable, steady winds and plenty of sunshine in the summer months.

Weymouth, Dorset

Weymouth, with its impressive sailing waters, played host to the sailing events at the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics. With thrills and challenges galore, this is an exhilarating destination set against stunning Jurassic coastline.
