Today's Report and Next Week's Plan

14 Apr 2019

14th April Race Training

We had a rather chilly race training session today with some great tips and advice from John Glasspool, Rob Campbell-Grey and Ben Powell. We had a strong turnout of junior Laser sailors who just got quicker all day. Jasmine in her Pico really got the boat going as did Trevor in the Feva. Noah in the Topper really kept in contention with the faster boats.

At the end of the session we had 2 short scratch races, both won by Rob Ford in his RS 300 with Rob CG and Ben pressing him. What was really impressive in both races was the way everyone was on the line at the start and how close such a mixed fleet was at the windward mark.

With some very variable conditions, the sight of the day had to be Oli and Alex in the RS400 on a 3 sail reach at speed or was it Ben in his Aero at speed in a personal humongous gust. A very big thank you to everyone for taking part

21st April Easter Sunday (We're all in the chocolates)

Next week on Sunday (that's Easter Sunday) we are intending to do some course racing; probably 3 or 4 races dependent on the weather. Chocolate eggs for prizes, however we do need 3 volunteers; 1 for race officer and 2 for rescue boat including 1 with PB2 qualification. Briefing as usual 1030 with the first start not before 1100.

Tattingstone Valley Sailing Club

13 Apr 2019

Tattingstone Valley Sailing Club
The changes to the running of the centre have come into effect and Anglian Water are operating the centre and as you’ll have noticed your payments are now for water access and storage rather than membership and storage . We are, with Anglian Water’s encouragement, developing the extant Tattingstone Valley Sailing Club to cover the gaps in what will / is likely at this stage to be offered in the future. This is supported by the AWSC charity as a furtherance of their aims to develop sailing at Alton Water.

The aim of the sailing club will be to continue and develop sailing especially competitive sailing at Alton. 
You’ll shortly be seeing information on the activities of the new sailing club and requests from the Steering Group who are guiding the club’s formation.

Those wishing to support and participate in what the club can offer should provide contact details to:

In doing so please provide the following details:
Name of sailor / member (also gender if not obvious) (from name)

Telephone contact detail(s)
Agreement that we may hold your details securely and communicate with you.

Outwardly you will see quite a significant amount of activity around the site. Anglian Water are currently renovating the car parks and sprucing up the café.
Please give the AW staff your support as they navigate through this period of change.


Sunday 14th April

This weekend the sailors are having a race and train day starting at 1030 with a briefing followed by short race and race training exercises. It is for everyone and a chance to blow away the cobwebs and for those new to racing a chance to work on developing their speed in a friendly unpressured situation.


Next weekend Easter Sunday 21st April

We are intending to run up to five fun races on Sunday starting with a briefing at 1030. This will give a chance to demonstrate what you picked up the week before. Anyone able to offer support should contact Gavin. You can use this email address


And finally for now

Keep your eyes open here and on face book We will shortly be publishing our programme for the rest of the season and further information on TVSC.

Statement to Members

19 Feb 2019

Statement to the members 


As you are all aware Anglian water have decided to not renew our lease with them.You will be aware that we were in negotiations with them and following a series of meetings at the end of last year, the overwhelming message that we got from the members was that you wanted us to work with Anglian Water to make sure that we maintained access to the water for you all.

Anglian water will be taking over operations from the 1st April. They have stated that they fully intend to allow the water to be used by you as you have always done. Indeed they appear keen to improve the experience. Therefore with effect from April the 1st you will need to pay membership and boat storage  to Anglian water.

Anglian water  have stated that  they intend to take over our staff and the staff will guide this process. As soon as possible Anglian water will be taking storage and membership fees.

We are advised that all corporate users will have the same access to the water as existing.

Anglian water has agreed not to increase prices for the coming year.


There are a few things that we still have to iron out but we believe that we can all look forward to a busy summer and autumn of events as usual.
