This week we have been advised by Anglian Water that Quagga mussels have been found in the uk.They have asked us to put some control measures in to try and make sure we dont get them here at Alton.This means that we need people to come to the office before going on the water to sign in so we can keep a check on numbers, any boats arriving also need to be washed in hot water and dried before arriving on site
The third Head race will be taking place on Saturday 22nd November from Lemons Hill Bridge to AWSC. The lake will remain open to all other users. There are a number of races taking place as follows;
11.30 am (approx 5 boats only)
2.30 pm (approx 5 boats only)
Crews will be getting on the water from 10.00 am and will be instructed to clear the main sailing area as quickly as possible both on the outward and return trip.
Trailers will be parked in the upper terrace car park and marshals will be on hand to ensure the minimum of inconvenience is caused to other users.
The Regatta Cafe will be open from 8.00 am for all members and users and a licensed bar will be operating from midday which again is open to all users.
