Chasewater model Boat Club was only officially formed in August of 2010. the main lake of the site was drained of water over 12 months ago, so the Council could repair the main dam wall and also carry out some other necessary repairs. So not even the full size boats have anywhere to put in to water.
So, the model boat club use the boating pool, by the innovation centre, its quite suitable and shallow enough to allow rescue with just a pair of waders. it serves it purpose sufficiently.
The "tracey island" as you call it, is there specifically for the wild birds that decide to nest there and keep them away from predators. The area is a nature reserve and it has to be respected as such.
