Bathing Water results - see here if you want to know whether the water at the coastal location you plan to visit is clean or not. Bear in mind though that testing for bathing waters is only carried out during the Summer months, so the water may be a little worse when we visit these places. Risk of pollution is highest after heavy rain. That's due to sewer overflows - you've been informed!

Afternoon boys were mainly on 5m sails, a bit underpowered at times between the gusts but overall a good day, some good wipe outs!!

John L - 05/07/2020 - 11:54

Sunday morning shift are finished if afternoon people want to come early. Overpowered on a 4.5m. Looks a bit less wind now. Enjoy!
