Alton Water Fair play

Alton Water Fair play


Message from the Chairman


I would like to remind all users of Alton water that we are a family orientated water sports facility.

We would like all users to enjoy the facility in a safe manner and feel comfortable that they can. We therefore encourage competition in a safe and inclusive environment for all ages and abilities and would like to remind everyone of the underpinning ethos of sailing.

Within the RYA Racing Rules of Sailing there are defined rules relating to how we behave toward fellow competitors on the water. We are all here to enjoy ourselves competing within that common set of rules and my plea to all of you is to behave within the intentions of the rules and with respect to all.

Your attention is drawn particularly to Rule 2 Fair Sailing and to Rule 69 which deals with gross misconduct. Please read and comply with the Racing Rules of Sailing and for those of you with greater knowledge and experience than others, be reasonable and honest in your expectations of others.

Finally and perhaps most importantly, please refrain from bullying or intimidating other competitors when a simple request for room or other such rule affirmation will suffice.

As a result of recent occurrences we feel we have to bring this to the attention of all competitors and that having been done, we will be vigilant in policing these aspects of our sport. Please take this statement in the sense it is intended so that we can all enjoy the nip and tuck of this most special of sports in an enjoyable atmosphere.
