Travelling to the Portland Sailing Academy

How do you get to the Portland Sailing Academy by Bus, if you stay in Weymouth?

The only bus (501) seems to go once every hour and costs £5.00.

The No1 is usless because there is a big walk from Victoria Square, not good if you have a large sailing bag.

There are rumours that the 210 will go after 19th July 2010 but this appears to be a once an hour service as well.

So much for the 'Green Olympics' I'll travel by car next time...

Weymouth, United...

yes the 210 does stop at the sailing academy, but it is only once an hour.

you can pick it up from the kings statue, on the opposite side of the road to the sea.Its opeerated by south west coaches the 501 is also hourly and yes it does cost £5 I think thats for an all day jump on and off ticket. ( This is the only bus that goes to portland bill.so its a rip off for tourists & it doesn't accept concessionary bus passes - seniors travel at child rate ) its run by First..

Like you say the 210 is once per hour, not a particularly regular service for such an important Olympic venue...

A taxi is your best bet. Plenty available in front of Weymouth railway station. Should cost around £12.

Thanks for the post Londoner016. But £12.00 each way is even more expensive... Still can't believe the Council or bus companies don't lay on a half decent special service for 'Sail for Gold'. Lets hope they sort it out before the Olympics...
