The Laser Open has has to be postponed as sailing is currently not allowed on the lake due to the flood defences currently in place. Watch this space for further details.
Update on the situation.
Members are now not required on Saturday morning 15th February to fill sand bags, see details below.
300 sand bags filled Wednesday and a double row has been laid around slipway. Power went off 3.00 pm back on 1.00 pm Thursday.
Several boats have blown over and have been left that way.
Watery Lane is being kept at a depth to drain the water from the lake and sand bags are being removed as necessary at the point where there is a concrete run off into the lane. The water is then being pumped away. There is another pump at the south east corner of the lake to feed the water south onto some sacrificial land.
Don't try and drive down Watery Lane Friday or Saturday if you wish to get to the club, park your car around the Green and walk in, Watery lane could be more that welly boot depth.
The clubhouse has got away with any flooding the only damage is a ridge tile has blown off over the Wet bar.
Due to high water levels and the sand bag defences being placed around the lake edge to prevent flooding of parts of Frampton on Severn Village, it has been decided by the main committee that sailing should be stopped until further notice.
