Where Is Broad Bay?

BROAD BAY, VIRGINIA BEACH

The Broad Bay / Linkhorn Bay complex runs on a Southeast - Northwest axis inside Cape Henry, from Laskin Road (Route 58) to Long Creek, the connection to the Lynnhaven River and the Chesapeake Bay.

Due to the 35 foot high bridges at Great Neck Road and Lynnhaven Inlet navigation is limited to sailboats of 25 feet length and smaller.

Broad Bay is bordered to the South/Southeast by the Great Neck Peninsula and to the Northeast by First Landing State Park. At the junction of Broad and Linkhorn Bays is the” Narrows” which is reached by land via 64th Street extended, one and one half miles inland from Atlantic Avenue. At the “Narrows” are launching ramps and sandy beaches of the state park.

Beautiful Broad Bay is a handsome place to sail but a challange when racing due to its shifty lake style winds. Until 1994 all Broad Bay Sailing Association one design racing was conducted on Broad Bay from the "Narrows". The BBSA one design regattas now take place on Willoughby Bay, Norfolk, or at the Old Dominion University Sailing Center, Norfolk.
