Sailing is an environmentally friendly sport that offers an enjoyable connection with nature.
Bristol Water are pleased to support access to the sport of sailing on its waters at Cheddar Reservoir and Chew Valley Lake. We have tenancy arrangements with membership clubs and are proud to be a part of their continued success.
Sailing at Chew is leased to Chew Valley Lake Sailing Club (CVLSC). CVLSC is one of the premier inland sailing clubs in the UK and welcomes new members. Chew is the largest inland waterway in the South West and is situated eight miles south of Bristol in the Mendip ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. The size of the lake and the topography of land around it makes for delightful cruising as well as exciting racing conditions.

Sailing at Cheddar Reservoir is leased to Bristol Corinthian Yacht Club (BCYC). BCYC is one of the foremost sailing clubs in South West of England and welcomes new members. The Mendip hills to the north provide a stunning backdrop at this friendly club. The reservoir is particularly well suited to windsurfing; with its elevation and relative proximity to the coast affording it stable winds and summer sea breezes.
