Duxbury is an excellent place to hone high-wind skills. There are no waves, and while the swells can get large enough to make uphauling impossible, that's about as large as they get. Pay attention to the tide since much of the area around the bridge is unsailable at low tide. On the other hand, just either side of low tide, the shallows are outstanding for learning waterstarts: stand up, position the rig, then drop back into the water for the start. The bottom, however, is clam bed muck so you'll want footwear if you plan to stand. If you sail the north side of the Powder Point Bridge, the wind barrels right down the channel. If the wind is out of the west, go somewhere else or be prepared to swim your rig to the windline; Powder Point produces the worst wind shadow we've ever seen. It can be glassy around the Point and cappin' in the Bay. So while the reports during westerlies may be encouraging, getting to those winds can be an ordeal.
local sticker required over the bridge-parking is available in small lot before crossing bridge
Note to Kite Surfers - please do NOT launch or kite on the bay side (eg west side of beach) anywhere near the Powder Point Bridge...drive out to 'Kite Beach' on the beach road near high pines.

From Route 3, take 14 going east. Turn left at "T" intersection that has a large concrete block in the center of it. Continue on this street until you come to the bridge. There are two small parking lots to your right, one paved, one "unimproved."

The sensor is located on the Bath house just north of Powder Point bridge. This experimental sensor beams the signal to utilities allowing us to keep the sensor allive without a phone line at the bath house! The readings are great in most directions, however some dunes to the South may cause some gustier readings.
