Casual sailing

Sundays: The third race on Sunday starts after the second race. This will mean the lake is clear mid to late afternoon for Cruising. So why not come down for a late lunch then take your boat out.

Boats and Boards may cruise at all times on the main lake except when an Open Meeting is taking Place.

The only condition is that cruiser's give way to racing craft and keep away from the start/finishing line and rounding marks. i.e. marks of the course. In other words do not interfer with the racing.

Boats or Boards that have not entered during an OPEN MEETING TAKING PLACE may NOT use the main lake during racing except with express permission of the Race Officer of the Day.


MondaysNo racing (except Spring Bank Holiday). HONDA Rib challenge at times in summer.
Tuesday EveningJunior Racing / Training (room for cruising)
Wednesday EveningWindsurfing training / racing (room for cruising - windsurfers have right of way)
Thursday EveningDinghy Racing 7pm to dusk (little room for cruising, windsurfers keep clear)
FridayOpen water swimming on small lake, main lake available
Saturday (normal)Saturday till 2.15 in season. Room for cruising, racing in afternoon, and extensive training all day April to June & Sept
Saturday - Open MeetingCruising till racing starts either 10.30, 11, or 1pm depending on open (see Notice of Race or Open Meeting Page No Cruising whilst racing )
Sunday (normal)Cruising till 11am, racing to approx 12.30pm, and again at 1.15pm approx (cruising over lunch) the second race finishes about 2.45pm normally, the third race starting around 3.15pm. The third race normally has less participants, so there can be room to cruise then, but keep clear of racing.
Sunday - Open MeetingCruising till 10.30am (unless otherwise stated) and often over lunch (with Race Officers permission) Open meetings often finish early to mid afternoon after which time the water is free. No cruising whilst racing is taking place or dinghies heading for start line.

These times can change, and saling at lunch etc during open meetings is with race officer permission, if people clear the water quickly once boats leave to go racing, there is often no objection.

Open water swimmers use the small or training lake during their season, no sailing on this lake whilst open water swimmers in the water.
