Dinghy Park tie down!

22 Oct 2010

Dinghies and other craft are required to be tied down when stored in our dinghy park.  This is because in high winds, craft can be lifted and projected across the park, causing considerable damage.  This is not theoretical, it happens. Insurance companies generally require that your craft be tethered for the same reason so if your craft is damaged as a result of not being tethered, you may not have insurance cover...

If your craft has not been tethered or you cannot quite remember whether you tethered it after it was last used, please come down to Alton Water ASAP to check.

Suffolk schools

24 Jun 2015


As you know this is something I am proud of. At Alton water we teach hundreds of children a year how to sail and we offer schools a discounted coaching programme. SWSA was an association that promoted sailing to our schools as a bona fide sport and we have supported them (and they us) in persuading some schools and parents that sailing is a great activity and a bona fide sport for kids, and everyone, an alternative to cricket and rounders if you like.

Sailing is a green sport that teaches children several sciences and maths as well as self reliance and problem solving. What's not to like about it as an activity? Sailing is competitive yet friendly and all participants are winners and all racers soon become friends, so what's not to like about it as a sport?
The regatta tomorrow gives kids a chance to show off their skills and represent their schools in what for some will be their first and for others, yet another, regatta. 
This regatta is put on as the result of 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 perform. I, personally, owe those volunteers a great deal of thanks. as it is not only the children and the schools that benefit but it is all those who come to Alton Water tomorrow or any other day that also benefits from events such as tomorrow's.
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 in some cases their Xboxes I am sure) and compete at Alton water for their school.
