Have a look at the Bristol Corinthian YC's website www.bcyc.org.uk their puddle is only 40% full and dropping. They have cancelled all water activities!!    Bewl Valley have transferred the LWA event as they have lots of mud and no water

Is there anyone else having troubles with the lack of water??

Ask Pierre... He sails at Weir Wood normally, but I think he might contemplate land yachts soon! Last time I heard, they were touching the village... upon which BWD said it brought a whole new meaning to 'cottaging'... LOL

Ive heard a lot about lack of water but for some reason Farmoor/OxfordSC is still close enough to full...

Not been down for a few weeks due to boat problems so Im not fully up to date, but I doubt its changed much since I was last there

The troubles seem to be in the southern areas - Chew Valley also has low levels. They have moved the Laser Inlands to Rutland!

If water levels are low at Chew, watch out for spires, chimneys and the odd wall!
