Alton Water Fair play

05 Apr 2016

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.

Thursday Night Mid-Week Mayhem Series 2016 - MEMBERS ONLY

05 Apr 2016

The Alton Thursday Night Series (Mid-week Mayhem) starts on April 7th running until 26th May.
We would love to get lots of non-racers out with us for this fun series.
It's an all in handicap off one single start at 1800 and we generally finish at or before 1900.
It's very social and great fun.  Any sailing dinghies (or windsurfers) can take part.

We are happy to help with hire boats (speak to the centre) if you need something to sail and there will always be someone to help you understand racing, starting, basic rules and we will even volunteer to helm or crew for you if you need us to.  

We do need volunteer OODs for each night (average points if you do it so it doesn't affect your results), so come and try this too, it's the best view of the races and a great way to learn in a safe environment.

Any questions at all ask at the Centre, or speak to Oli or Mark Smith, we are quite friendly so come along and have fun - it's free but for Alton Water members only)!

Entry form available here

Membership and dinghy storage renewals are due by 31st March 2016 in accordance with our rules.

Unfortunately, due to an increase in the rent we pay, 2016/17 charges have had to be increased, however, if membership is taken out or renewed before 31 March 2016, last year's prices will apply (sorry but this doesn't apply to dinghy storage charges).
