Event Contact: Chris MartinBristol Corinthian Y.C. Details Address: Cheddar Reservoir, Axbridge, Nr Cheddar, Somerset Region: South West www.bcyc.org.uk Directions: BCYC is based in a large clubhouse attached to Cheddar Reservoir. To get to the reservoir simple drive along the A38 either up from the M5 or down from Bristol. Take the turning signposted Axbridge and then carry on up and around Axbridge on the bypass. Once you join the Axbridge bypass take the first right and then look out for a little signposted left turn up to the reservoir.
The reservoir provides a large area of open water nearly 1 mile in diameter and works best in the prevailing south westerly wind although it's very sailable in all wind directions. The reservoir is elevated above the surrounding Somerset levels and consequently the wind is not obstructed.
Launching is easy from a wide flat area. Off the water, the club house facilities include changing rooms, hot showers, a spacious club house with training areas, bar and views over the reservoir and the Somerset levels. There is a galley with hot meals on Sundays and Wednesday evenings. The club is fortunate to have undercover storage for dinghies as well as a large car park.
The surroundings are lovely, with the Mendip hills providing a beautiful backdrop.
