Welcome

Cody Sailing Club – a virtual sailing club specialising in fleet dinghy cruising and family camping.

  • Bridging the gap between RYA Level 2 and confidently sailing in a wide variety of conditions on your own.
  • Come adventurous dinghy cruising in company – fleet dinghy cruising
  • Join us family camping with dinghies, canoes, windsurfers and Stand-Up Paddlers. Camp by the waterside in beautiful locations
  • Extend your range… Coastal cruise your dinghy on a family camping holiday.

We are a friendly Club and we welcome anyone interested in dinghy cruising, yacht cruising and camping – and you don’t have to do them all – we also walk and cycle sometimes.

The whole family, and singles, will enjoy the good life getting back to nature with Cody.

Preparing to sail to Swanage as a fleet from Poole Harbour

We have a wide operating area, across the South of England, and we venture further afield for camps. We sail in Sussex, Hampshire, Dorset, Devon and Cornwall.

We are based in Hampshire, with a membership across the South of England. We currently keep our club boats at Frensham Pond, and run some activities there. For daysails we travel to great locations on the South Coast, and we travel further afield for camps.

The primary purpose of the club is to organise affordable coastal sailing cruises and sailing-themed camps for our members, in a friendly and supportive group environment. The sailing is designed to suit a wide range of sailing abilities, whilst the camping also appeals to non-sailing members of all ages.

A family day on the beach at Mill Bay in Salcombe Harbour. Seven boats sailed and some more members drove to the beach.

While we are most definitely not a racing community, we welcome members with all levels of sailing competence, and there is always a healthy interest in effective and efficient sailing.

We do not offer clubhouse facilities or storage for club member’s boats.

Instead, the club operates primarily as a tidal cruising organisation for sailing dinghies and  yachts. We sail in a wide variety of sailing locations in and around the UK.

Members bring Canoes, SUPs and Windsurfers to camp. Here the canoeists are preparing for an early morning paddle towards Salcombe.

Our programme provides both tidal and inland sailing events that are tailored to suit the mixed interests of our membership.

Many of our camps are on private coastal sites that landowners have made available to the club over many years.

We enjoy fleet dinghy cruising in tidal waters in the Solent and other prime UK locations.

We support Cruiser Rally’s for our Yachting community and dinghy fraternity alike, and in order to maintain social contact all year round we hold winter events both on the water and ashore.

To provide dinghy space for non-boat owners on our cruising events, the club also provides access to three Comet Trio club dinghies, subject to an additional Dinghy Section membership fee. These boats are also available for hire by qualified crews.

Club Boats being sailed by members after they have passed RYA Level 1 and 2, and want to now build their skills and experience.

We are an active and friendly sailing club whose membership used to be drawn mostly from around the Farnborough and Portsdown, Hampshire area, and now we have membership from Yorkshire to Somerset, Sussex to Dorset. We organise regular dinghy cruises on the sea and inland waters as well as yacht cruises and many family camps. Other activities involve friendly racing and many social activities including visits and talks.

Renewal time

Happy new year to all Cody Sailing Club members.

We have an exciting programme of events in the pipeline for 2019 but before all that, we do need to collect your subscriptions.

The good news is that we haven’t increased the rates this for year. The fees are;

Individual membership rate:  £22
Partner/family supplement:   £12

So the new total rate for couples / families is £22 £12 = £34

The dinghy section membership (to permit one member to sail the club boats) is now £80 per person.

So the combinations of club memberships and dinghy section membership are as follows;

Individual with dinghy section membership:   £102
Family membership with 1 dinghy section membership:   £114
Family membership with 2 dinghy section memberships:  £194

Fees are due now and must be received by no later than 31st January 2019. As last year we do have a late payment fee of £30 which is be payable if subs have not been received by that date, so please make a note now.

Our preferred payment method is bank transfer. The account details are available from our Treasurer.

If you are paying by transfer, why not set up a standing order to save time next year?

We are still willing to accept cheques; these should be posted to the Treasurer at an address we can supply.

The dinghy section membership (but not club membership) may be spread over 10 monthly payments by standing order if so desired. Please let me know if you wish to pay dinghy section fees this way.

Thank you in advance.

Regards

CSC Treasurer
