S W Optimist Championship and Optimist Coaching Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th June On the weekend of 25th/26th June we have the Optimist South West Championships at Chew - which sounds very grand for what will actually be quite a small race event. Running alongside this event is an Optimist Coaching event. The Saturday will have coached racing on a very small course. This means they'll be a coach in a RIB helping those who are struggling. (Optibats are OK for this). Timings as above. On the Sunday we have a full day of Optimist coaching lined up. We have booked the services of Hermione Stanley (not Granger unfortunately, but she's just as magic!) who is an Optimist Coach for the South Zone Squad. She is a great coach and will take all levels from beginners upwards. It's a great opportunity to get some top coaching here at Chew.

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