With its long, wide sandy bay, Calgary beach is the perfect place to learn to sail. Its sands extend over ¼ mile making it a safe and enjoyable place for sailing. With its constant onshore winds from the west, it gives very good sailing close to the beach whilst its tides are gentle and slip by almost unnoticed.
The marine life in the bay is rich, with dolphin pods, an abundance of fish and several local otters. There are white tailed sea eagles that use the bay. Close by are the islands of Treshnish and Ulva better accesses by sail cruiser than dinghy.
This remarkable bay is ideal for beginners and more advanced sailors. Try dinghy sailing in the bay, sail cruising to one of the nearby islands or performance sailing to Coll at 27 ++ knots
