Open Meetings

Open Meetings are held for the adopted classes. Open meeting Calendar. During the races no other sailing is allowed unless specified in the Club Racing Calendar or with the permission of the Race Officer. Note there may be changes to Open Meetings, if so relevant details will be posted on the Notice board near to the Race Office. The Sailing instructions for each meeting are linked at the bottom of this page.

The club has an enviable reputation, not only for the well organised open meetings on the water, but Pauline’s great catering off the water. There is space in the clubhouse for visitors to watch. We can normally accommodate camping for events, (contact the event organiser for details) but there is no electric hook up or chemical toilet disposal.

Please note all craft, clothing or anything else that will contact the water should follow the national invasive species cleaning protocol to prevent transfer of unwanted species.

ILCAThe club has limited (slow) Wifi but there is generally a good mobile phone signal.

Priority use of water during Open events at the club

The race course for Open events on the main lake is exclusively for the use of the competitors and the Race team during races. Other water users must keep clear of the boats that are racing. The Sailing Secretary may authorise (with the agreement of the Race Officer) other water user groups (Eg the University, Training section, Saturday Club & YRS) to run activities on small sections of the Main lake (Eg the Clubhouse end) which are not normally part of the racing area.

The Race Officer may give permission to other individual users to go on the Main Lake between races (Eg at lunchtime) or use small sections of the main lake such as the edges and sectors away from the race course (Eg for paddle boarding). The small lake is available at most times other than those reserved for Open water swimming (See page on club website) unless it is being used by Training or the University.

In all cases any group organiser or individual who plans to go on the water should make contact with the Race Officer on the day to check permission is granted and agree No-Go areas and times. There is a radio in the Race Office for this purpose. Note that the Open meeting Safety Team are primarily responsible for rescuing competitors. Group Organisers must book power boats and provide their own Safety crews.

Please give competitors priority use of the changing rooms an hour before the Open meeting start and 60 minutes after the finish of last race
