  • Standalone Sunday afternoon pursuit race
  • Cafe open both days (9.30am to 6pm depending on demand)
  • Saturday afternoon/evening family fun and games together with free use of our gas BBQ
  • The cost of the weekend's racing is £12 for members and £18 for visitors
  • Single day entry (either the Saturday OR the Sunday), £6 members and £9 for visitors
  • Free overnight secure berthing, free camping (sorry NO CARAVANS or CAMPERVANS)

Suffolk Schools Regatta - Thursday 29th June

15 May 2017


Alton Water is proud to again host the annual  Suffolk Schools Regatta on Thursday 29th June.

This regatta could not be held without a great deal of help and organisation by many volunteers. Every year, every one of those volunteers feels it was all worth it to see the kids enjoy themselves and perform to the best of their ability. But most importantly, every year the kids love it; they love racing and racing for their school. They love the water, the atmosphere and have a great day out. For spectators too, the sight of many boats out on the water in all colours, shapes and sizes is a highlight of the year. So come on down and see the kids get away from their studies and compete at Alton Water for their school.

The Regatta Booking Pack is now available and can be found here

The Schools Entry spreadsheet mentioned in the booking pack can be downloaded here.

The Notice of Race is also available here

Sailing Instructions are available here.

Some customers are experiencing problems when trying to pay online for membership, dinghy park or courses.

We are working on solving these problems but in the meantime, if you've paid for any of the above via Paypal and have not received a confirmation email from us, it is likely that your payment has not been processed successfully.

If that's the case, please either call into the office or call us (01473 328408) between 10am and 8pm (6pm at weekends) so that we can process your payment successfully. This is especially important if you're booking training courses as course places are not reserved until successful payment has been received.

Race Pricing

09 May 2017

After listening to our members and in direct support of the centre's charitable aims to get more people out on to the water, after the end of the Spring Series, all dinghy racing (outside of Open Meetings, the Autumn Regatta, Lemons Hill Bridge Races and the Frostbite Series) will be free to members. Non-members of Alton Water will still be expected to pay the relevant visitor race entry fee or day membership 
Further, day members (i.e. visitors) will be welcome and encouraged to join in our current evening racing and weekend Summer Series which have until now been strictly for members only. 
2017 Alton Water Race Card holders can contact the office and will receive a 75% refund on their race card.
This has become possible simply because our members are now running and supporting the racing. Should we in future require to use paid staff to run racing again, charging for racing may have to be reinstated.
