Dinghy Racing

Dinghy Racing

The Club has a number of keen racers within its membership and promotes dinghy racing activities through a number of events:

10 Hour Relay Race – Frensham Pond Sailing Club

This event is held during a summer day at Frensham Pond Sailing Club. The race is open to teams racing the Club boats.

Match Racing – Frensham Pond Sailing Club

We normally try to hold two series of match races, one in the spring or early summer at or near the end of the Level 1+2 course and one in the late summer after our summer camp. Both of these series use the Club boats on Frensham pond usually on a weekday evening and are open to all members. The racing is competitive, but not too serious and is an ideal introduction to club racing. Each series usually culminates in a race afternoon held at the weekend usually coinciding with a social event (Summer Social in July and the Late Summer Social in September). The races are usually held on an individual helm basis and trophies are awarded for best helm and best novice helm.

Summer Camp Regatta

A highlight of the Clubs annual camp is the Regatta, usually held sometime during the middle weekend. The day consists of races in a number of different categories. There is a handicap race open to all and a ladies helm race as well as races for the coveted ‘GP’ and ‘mirror’ trophies.

Bart’s Bash

Bart’s Bash is a charity event to raise funds the help transform the lives of young people through sailing. We are looking to put teams into the next race in the Autumn.

Winter Series – Frensham Pond Sailing Club

The club Comet Trios are available to Dinghy Section members and there are handicap series on both Saturday and Sunday.

Comet Trio Nationals

The club boats can be taken to any Comet Trio Open Meeting and Nationals. Any Comet Trio rigged as our boats are, with the sails from the standard sailmakers and just as they are can be taken to any Comet Trio event and it’s in class. That also means that you can race our Comet Trios in any handicap race as well, and it’s within class and ready to go.

Round Isle of Sheppey Race Notes

A good sail is the longest dinghy race in Europe, and the notes for the race will help future explorers enter this race without making the mistakes that we made on our first year.

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
