Cyanobacteria (Blue-green algae)
The lake has a green bloom probably some species of Aphanizomenon which the park has warned may make swimming and watersports a health hazard to both people and pets.
Some of us have continued sailing and, despite my usual capsizes, have so far suffered no ill effects.
Anyone choosing to sail does so at their own risk. Extra caution about washing, especially before eating or handling food, is strongly advised.
The water supply is fixed.
We have been sailing on 20, 22, 27and 29 July.
We will be sailing on Saturday 5th August.
