Flooding and Club Walk

Sun 23rd Feb : Road completely clear but bumpy on corner, we will probably need to wait till all this rain has dropped before repairing fully. The containers and all boats etc are clear of the water, and levels have dropped to a little higher than the November water level, you can see from second photo how much they have dropped since Thursday.

The Exec meet tomorrow so there may be more news after that or in Newsletter later this week.

Sat 22nd Feb: The Bosun has reported the access road is now clear. The Vice Commodore is advising that people do not sail, there are no toilets/ showers and there will be underwater objects (posts etc) not visible there may also be floating debris from the flooding, in addition pontoons are inaccessible.

Afternoon on 20th – water still dropping.
James suggested I take the drone down, so here area a few photos, the water has dropped quite a bit. Causway Dyke has grown a little!

 

Feb 20th: The water has gone down since yesterday, and whilst the access road and corner have water on them it is passable with care. Most containers are now above water. The toilets are unusable at present as the cesspit is full of water. 

Water levels gone down (see debris to left) passable with care.

Feb 19th: As many will know the club has been cut off by flooding, it has come over the road and up to the containers. The River Trent is well down now so hopefully the water will disperse. We will keep this page updated on access etc.

Please not the toilets will not be usable at present, providing we can access this will be checked over the weekend.

The Club walk has been cancelled along with the meal due to this and the possible lack of access. The walk will also be across potentially flooded and very muddy fields.

The road in on 19th Feb (Wednesday)

The container and small lake. Tim Cripps has checked boats all safe.
