Sailing Suspended 14-Jun-24 with immediate effect – Blue Green Algae

Regretfully I am writing to advise members that all water borne activity on the lake has been suspended with immediate effect due to high levels of Blue Green algae.

Bristol water have consequently notified us that all fishing and sailing activity on the lake is suspended until further notice.

What this means:

  • There will be no sailing Saturday 15-Jun-24 or Sunday 16-Jun-24. No boats, RIBs or other craft can be launched on the water until further notice
  • The club grounds remain open for members to access their boats to carry out maintenance etc. However members should keep clear of the water
  • The duty teams have been stood down for this weekend.
  • The above will remain the case until advised otherwise

Ben and Antonia will be at the club on Saturday and Sunday providing a catering service as normal. Obviously this would normally be a busy period and I would encourage all members to show your support for their efforts and come and enjoy a lunchtime meal or snack at the club as you would normally.

Bristol Water monitor the water levels regularly and obviously we all hope that levels will return to an acceptable threshold in the near future and we can return to the water. I will be in touch with them regularly to understand the position and will update you as soon as any further information becomes available.

When is Sailing Permitted at Chew?2022-01-13T09:50:34+00:00

Permitted days are on Sat, Sun, Wed and Thu and those Bank Holiday Mondays where General Sailing is listed in the Calendar.

You may sail on those permitted days subject to rescue cover in accordance with the club safety policies.

At weekends, and those Bank Holiday Mondays with General Sailing, we roster rescue cover from 10:00 until 18:00 on Saturdays and Sundays.
On Wednesdays rescue cover is rostered to cover the period 10:00-16:00 during the day, and in the evening from 18:00 when there is racing scheduled over the summer.
Rescue cover is also rostered for the Thursday Improvers/Start Racing and Fun Thursdays events listed in the Calendar.

You can view rostered rescue cover on Dutyman if you are unsure.

Remember, on permissible sailing days at times when there is no rescue cover rostered, sailing is still permissible provided RIB cover is provided in accordance with the Buddy Group Safety Policy

Sailing is NOT permitted before 10:00 and only when the club burgee is flying from the flagpole outside the clubhouse.

Sailing must end half an hour before Sunset

In Summer (15-Mar to 15-Sep) extra conditions apply
Sailing must end an hour before Sunset
Sailing may end at 18:00 at Duty Officer’s discretion.

Does any rescue cover have to be in place before any sailing can commence?2022-01-13T10:50:21+00:00

Yes, sailing is only permitted when at least two motorised rescue craft are on the water and in an operational condition.
