Wonder if anyone pick up a car key (old fashioned manual type) which is slightly rusted. I think it fell out from my pocket in the car park after the race today. Or it might be anywhere in the lake permises. Luckily I had the electronic one to drive the car back home. Thank you very much. 😊

What a day 🤩
First SUP race completed with my amazing SUP Gang 🙌

Female Category
🥉 Overall
🥇 Inflatable

Steve Laws, Austen Joe, Helen and Sarah well done for smashing it 💪

Everyone made an amazing effort and massive congrats to all 36 participants, especially to Alex, the winner of the race who flew like a rocket while being 5 months pregnant 🤰

Thanks Nick from Gowiththeflo for pulling such a great event together with The Eyot Centre - the atmosphere was amazing 🥳
It was a perfect opportunity to catch up with Andrew Halliday and Nick from Just SUP uk👋

This event is an important milestone in my sup journey as it is just the beginning of my racing experience.

Throughout the winter I would be training and practising racing skills at Go with The Flow oand Bray Lake Watersports SUP Racing Winter Series 2021‼️ I hope that after the right amount of training I will push myself and get to the position when I could start to compete at a professional level while participating in various events in 2022 💪

Today 6km loop I managed to complete in 52 min and 39 seconds and beat my personal record and complete 5km loop in 44 min 🏆 The last km was a killer as my hip and lower back was giving a lot of discomforts - still haven't recovered fully after little car accident...

I have a long way to go but I am super excited for this journey ahead of me 😍 For now, there is plenty of reason to celebrate and feel extremely proud of myself 😊

Hi,
Anyone local to the lake lost 2 dogs???
Hello
I hope this post is taken in the best intentions it is written in. I saw tonight you have a new bike gate near the nursery. I wondered if you had plans to replace the incredibly difficult gate further round please? I love walking round the lake as I live next to it but I find it difficult to bend down and get through that gate due to a back issue that doesn’t stop me walking but does affect me being able to bend. I know there’s a few of my neighbours who are a little bit older than me who love to walk round too and I imagine it must be very difficult for them to get through as well.
I also wondered if you will continue to keep access shut to the lake on a couple of the open spots towards the bridge side that have now been gated? I know a lot of the spots at the top of the lake are fished but the ones near Tithe Barn Drive end haven’t been used in months and are now severely overgrown. A lot of us residents tend to walk round with secateurs to keep the paths passable and would have kept those areas down too if we’d had access.
I do very much understand why the changes have been implemented after so much awful antisocial behaviour last year but it is quite sad for locals who are now struggling to walk round or push a child round in a pram anymore.
Many thanks!

On Saturday 23rd April our SUP race team headed to Devon for the annual Head of The Dart (HOTD) race. This event is one of the first races of the season and a goal to keep the race team motivated during winter training.
For three of our race team this was their first experience of HOTD. Fernando said
“Right from the start, this was an amazing weekend. Staying at Dartington Hall, who were so accommodating, friendly and helpful when it came to storing the board and just being there, to the relaxed, laidback atmosphere at the HOTD venue, I have had the best weekend ever. As a HOTD ‘virgin’ I was a tad worried that I wouldn’t be up to the challenge but with the support and encouragement from both Sam and Candice, I plunged in (almost literally), and completed the race in good time. I was tired at the end, but hearing Candice shouting “come on Fernando!” spurred me on over the finish line. There will be more races to come, that’s for sure, and hopefully soon!”
Congratulations to all those who took part and completed the race despite the challenging conditions.
Our race team will be back on home water for the first race in our summer series this weekend.
If you want to get involved in some SUP racing speak to one of our staff who will let you know how to begin.
