Lake Plan

Chew has a large sailing area, approximately 3 km long. It is divided into two areas, the restricted summer area and the full area.The full area can be used throughout the winter and on Sunday afternoons.

The restricted summer area applies during the fishing season (mid March to mid October).

The sailing area is marked out by lines of small white buoys. The race marks are red marks with red flags for the numbered marks and white flags for the lettered marks. The numbered marks start at zero at the north end of the dinghy park and go around the periphery of the lake in a clockwise direction. Down the middle of the lake from top to bottom are three extra marks – A, B & C.

For large open meetings the club also uses large inflatable marks.

There is a gate off the southern end of the clubhouse, the transit of which is marked by two red and white poles in front of the race hut. The inner and outer distance marks have blue flags.
