Spinnaker Sailing Club's Sustainability Policy
"Blashford Lake where Spinnaker Club is located is owned by Wessex Water and leased to us and a local fishing group under strict environmental and wildlife protection terms, and is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and Ramsar Site. Spinnaker Sailing Club works with Natural England, the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust, Wessex Water and Christchurch Angling Club to manage the site to enable recreational watersports in a sensitive manner respecting the natural environment.
- Landing on the islands in the lake is strictly forbidden.
- Swimming in the lake is forbidden (capsizes excepted!)
The lake is populated by geese and ducks, with Schedule 1 Protected Bird Species including Common Terns and Mediterranean Black Headed Guls nesting on the islands, so any pets brought on site must be kept on a lead and under control please.
To preserve the environment, we welcome you to our club and kindly ask that you:
- Ensure that your boat and launching trolley is cleaned before arriving on site and launching to prevent accidental introduction of invasive species.
- Clean you boat before you leave. There is a hose available for this.
- Prevent accidental litter and try not to bring single use plastics on site. We have fresh water available for drink re-fills.
- Use the waste bins provided and do not throw anything into the lake.
Our commitment to sustainability has included the recent installation of solar panels and the fitting of battery storage capability."
