Hedging

We are creating a market garden in a very windy spot a few miles from the sea. We need a fast growing windbreak. I like hornbeam but have also been recommended leylandii for fast growth. I am worried that Leylandii will means lots of work. We are replanting native hedging around the rest of the garden and I think the hornbeam would fit with that. but is it good enough as a windbreak? Our soil is quite heavy clay. Any advice, recommendations, would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
