The Reservoir Level, 23rd September/4th October 2018

The water Level on 4th October is similar/just lower than the photos below taken on 23rd September.

On 16th September there was quite a substantial area of island visible. Just one week later only a small island was visible and only just at that. The water level had risen 0.7metres or more due to rain of about 70mm. It's about 4 metres below full. Perhaps we should wish for plenty more wet and windy weather ... or could that be a bit grim?!

The photos were taken on a mobile phone, mostly from distance, so the quality is a bit poor but still gives a useful idea. You'll note that we have a very large sailable area, but do please be careful your fin doesn't ground! Southerly winds will be blocked by the dam for a while too.

Please make sure you secure the gate properly when leaving. Tia is organising a new post, hopefully soon!?

the gatepost on entry to the clubhouse carpark fell over today as I was opening the gate. Tia and I extended the chain so it can be locked round the pedestrian gate.

Yeah me too, not been for ages.

I thought autumn was supposed to be a sequence of sou-westerly gales sweeping across. Not been windsurfing for weeks! Is anyone else as fed up as me?

Just me today then? Heading up late morning

working at HLWAC tomorrow, so no sailing for me. Thursday is looking windy but far to cold and wet.:-(

John L - 03/11/2019 - 18:01

Hoping to sail Tuesday if forecast holds. Bit cold though!?

Really enjoyed today's working party; it was a great opportunity to get to know other members while working with them. I love hard work; I could sit and watch it for hours!
