Water currently closed.
The lake is frozen therefore the water is currently closed.
The office and dinghy compound however remain open as per our normal opening times.
Racing Sunday 22 Jan 2017
Although we managed to clear the water of ice on Saturday 21st, a combination of no wind and low temperature overnight has resulted in the lake freezing over again.
That coupled with almost no wind here at the moment means unfortunately that there will be no racing today.
Please watch this space for further information regarding the Frostbite Series.
Revised Race Schedule
Races 1 and 2 postponed from 8th January will be sailed on 22nd and 29th January respectively.
The current scheduling of races is as follows:
22nd January 2017 - First start 11.00am. Three races back to back. Races 5, 6 and 1.
29th January 2017 - First start 11.00am. Three races back to back. Races 7, 8 and 2.
The above, as always, is subject to favourable weather conditions.
This notice complies with SI 5.1.2
A somewhat disappointing start to the Frostbite series today with racing postponed due to lack of wind.
However it gave those who turned up the chance to reacquaint themselves with Alton Water, complete registration and drop their boats off for storage.
Some competitors expressed a wish to see a list of entries, so fleet entries to date can be seen here.
Fingers crossed for good sailing conditions next Sunday when we hope to be able to sail 3 races back-to-back.
