26. Why put a Watersports Centre at this location – isn’t the water dangerous here due to the flow of the tides?

This location is very suitable for a Watersports Centre. It is the location most used by kite surfers because there is no conflict with swimmers on this stretch of beach (bathing being prohibited). The Centre will be available for national and international events from where competitors and spectators will take part in and view competitions. It is entirely appropriate therefore that it is located close to the stretch of water that offers the best conditions for launching boards. The Centre will also be available as a base for training and tuition for young people, but these users will be taken from the centre to safer areas of coastline more suitable for tuition as has always been the practice.
