The launch is sandy beach for as far as you can see. The shore slopes gradually, and you can walk out a long way before it gets over your head. This makes it a great place for beginners and intermediate sailors when there are light and medium winds. There are no water hazards, other than swimmers and boaters.

The beach faces north and is great during east, north, and west winds. Southeast and southwest winds are sailable, but caution should be taken since these winds are slightly offshore. South winds are offshore and should be avoided.

The most popular sailing area is on the west side of the beach where a large shoal juts out into the water. This location is more favourable since the wind hits a little more cross-shore during the prevailing northwest winds. Once the winds pick up, the waves start building, especially on the west side near the shoal. Waves get really huge when the winds are strong for any length of time.

"Kettles" (totally round rocks) are only found here and one other place in Australia.

Kettle Point is a little less than three hours from Toronto, about one hour from London, and 25 minutes southwest of Grand Bend. Take the 401 West, then take the 402 at London. Follow the 402, take exit # 34 North (HWY #21), and continue straight until you get to a junction at Lambton Road #7. Take a left on #7, then an immediate right onto County Road #14. This road heads straight to the beach at Kettle Point. At the end of the road, turn left onto the beach and park where you like.

The sensor is located atop a flagpole near the middle of the beach. It receives clear wind from all directions, except south (offshore) when readings will be lower and from a wider range.
