Welcome to Chew Valley Lake Sailing Club

Sail for Gold Regatta - Follow the action

Chew Valley Lake is the biggest inland waterway in the south-west of England and a great place to sail.

The lake is situated on the northern edge of the beautiful Mendip hills, eight miles south of Bristol.

The picturesque surroundings make the lake a popular destination for walkers, picnickers, bird watchers and anglers as well as sailors.

On the water, the Club can easily cater for fleets of over one hundred boats and we have in the past been called upon to host many large events. Five separate slipways enable easy launching. Off the water, the clubhouse facilities include large changing rooms, hot showers, galley run by professional caterer (serving hot and cold lunches, light refreshments and drinks) at the weekends, a fully licensed bar and terrace overlooking the lake.

We also cater for disabled people with facilities on both floors and a lift.

The Club is open for sailing on Wednesday, Thursday and every weekend with racing held on Wednesday evenings and Sundays. Various sailing courses are held at the club including RYA training, various youth training, powerboat training, race officer training as well as more informal training run within each fleet. A selection of dinghies is also available for members to try.

If you are interested in joining the club then why not come down on a Saturday or Sunday, have a chat with one of our friendly members and have a look at what we have to offer. The good news is that you may not have to wait too long to join as sometimes we have vacancies throughout the year.
