The lake itself is some 1189′ in lenght and approx 187′ wide at its narrowest point, marks are situated at a approx distance of 200′ between each set of three. It enjoys a reasonably open aspect but being cemi cicular in shape and set between the Fort and the River Thames it can provide challenging conditions in which to enjoy a days sailing.  It should be noted that the side of the lake is an all grassed area and that suitable footwear be used by competitors. The lake itself is saltwater and boats should be washed down in fresh water as soon as practicable after sailing.
