The summer marches on and as we pass the Solstice we are reminded to make the most of the longer evenings with sailing on Wednesdays and Thursdays and to be involved in the busy weekend schedule.
We hosted the RS Feva Inland Championships and with a strong force 4, gusting 30 knots, witnessed some extraordinary sailing and had a great deal of fun. Alice Edmonds and Louis Gibbs finished an amazing 6th in a fleet of 55 amongst a number of young sailors carrying sponsorship and a level of backup that was close to professional.
We are being interviewed by BBC Radio Bristol this coming Saturday as a part of their regular sports programme which is aimed at raising the profile of the sport and good publicity for the club. We have membership spaces available and it would be great to fill them over the coming months.
The club really is a lovely place to be over the summer weekends and even if not sailing, please come down for a coffee and a little bit of sun and fun.

In addition to online donations we collected £400.00 towards the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation. See the article on the back of the Chew Valley Gazette:
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.
