Check Clean Dry 2017-02-28T17:32:04+00:00

NOTE TO VISITORS and members returning to Chew– prevention of the spread of invasive non-native species.
CVLSC and Bristol Water are committed to the prevention of the spread of invasive species. We are following the Environment Agency and RYA guidelines – CHECK CLEAN DRY.

Visiting sailors before travelling to Chew and members returning should take all reasonable measures to:

1. CHECK for plant material and animal species (e.g. shrimp, zebra mussel)

2. CLEAN – wash boats, launching trolleys and kit

3. DRY – for as long as possible, at least 2 days

After racing/sailing all visitors are asked to CHECK and CLEAN before leaving the site. Further details will be provided at registration and as part of the competitors briefing.
