Beach Review of The Trench

"The Trench" at St. Maries de la Mer is a man-made, regularly dredged area purpose-built for windsurfing, where world records have taken place. It's only open at certain times of the year, and there is a fee to use it. When conditions are right, winds can blow at 50 to 60 knots.
