    Just called the reservoir for details of launching, its 7.50 for a day and 5.50 for an evening. you can only paddle if there are at least 2 of you and you also need to be covered for third party liabillity of 1,000,000. which, i was told that you need to show proof of before launching.
    the reservoir is a 250 acre manmade lake with good facilities and easy access.

    Sounds a bit extreme. Would BCU membership cover the insurance liability?

    It does sound a bit steep, but, i dont know what the going rate is for getting afloat on a reservoir. I'm going to look into the insurence details.

    Its a beautiful area and would really like to paddle the reservoir as its very close to me.

    1,000,000 pretty standard liability; actually a bit low for present times. Maybe they only have minor repair works needed at this time. "I'm sorry but I notice you scuffed a bit of grass getting out and you kept hitting the water with that bat. If I could just take some details off you and we'll be in contact, once we know how much the Christmas party is going to cost."

    Seriously, the yearly premium for such for a private individual, is in all likelyhood going to be pretty low.

    Hmm is it owned by Welsh Water? If so it emerged in the Welsh Inland waterways inquiry by the sustainability committee that Welsh Water has a duty to promote access, 7.50 sounds quite bit to me when Bala is 3 if I remember correctly.

    Here is the BCU page covering third party insurance. It seems that if you live in England, Scotland or Northern Ireland you are covered for 10 million via your membership. If you live in Wales ............ contact WCA via the link at the bottom of the page.
