Chipstead Sailing Club is volunteer-run and has in excess of 400 memberships, many including a couple, or a couple and their children. Active membership spans an age range from 7 years old to over 80, although many younger children also enjoy being down there. Most members have their own boats.
We are an RYA Training Establishment and courses are run each year. Details can be found through the web site or by picking up a leaflet at the club.
Junior sailing is concentrated on Saturday mornings from early April to late October with the main club races spread over Saturday afternoon, Sunday morning and Sunday afternoon. There is racing on Sunday mornings in the winter with the exception of the first six when we all take part in working parties.
Our group members can be seen in action Monday to Friday, together with our own model yachting class, participate in canoeing and rowing as well as sailing. The disabled group is well supported.
You are very welcome to come down and visit the club and meet people. It is best to do this on a Sunday, or a summer Saturday. If you have no idea who to approach, asking if there is a committee member around is a good start. During the week the club house may not be open and members of groups may not be in a position to answer your questions.
Our Open Day is the first Monday Bank Holiday in May.
I am generally at the club on Saturdays and for the winter working parties as that is the time to sort out renewal issues. I would be happy to meet you.
