COVID and tallard's Marsh

Boating in England is a permitted form of exercise however the clubs facilities are not allowed to be open. However, personal equipment belonging to an individual should be made accessible so access to Tallard's Marsh will not be restricted.

Useful read is the RYA Covid-19 FAQs valid in England from 5 January 2021.

If you are going down there to collect personal equipment you should take preventative measures including:

  • HANDS - Wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds. Use sanitiser where water and soap is not available.

  • FACE - Wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet.

  • SPACE - Stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings or increasing ventilation indoors).

Any other reason for going down is not valid so please do not do so until further notice.


Next Meeting

Chepstow Boat Club meets, unless decided otherwise, at 7.30pm on the first Monday in the month. This can change with bank holidays or other special reasons so please do check before coming. We also don't meet in January each year.

Welcomes New Members

If you own a boat, or just enjoy messing about on the river, then why not join our club. Please get in touch to talk about joining or download an application form and send it to our chairman.

We are a well-established club, that seeks to promote Chepstow as a centre for boating on the River Wye. As a club member, you will enjoy the use of our Landing Pontoon and Walkway, which gives easy, mud-free access to craft on the river. We also have access to the slip-way, for the launch of smaller boats.

The Club holds various events throughout the year, such as a Boat Jumble, Barbecues on the river bank, quizzes, Summer and Christmas Dances and Regattas. Members also get together to take their craft across to Bristol’s Festival of the Sea.
