Club Boats

Club Boats

The Club currently operates three dinghies (three Comet Trios) which are sailed and maintained by the Dinghy Section.

All three boats are berthed at Frensham Pond Sailing Club during the summer months. Two Trios have full membership and one has a weekday only membership. The boats are stored on their trollies at Frensham Pond and additional materials are kept at the Boat Shed on the Farnborough site.

During the winter months all members of the Dinghy Section are asked to help with the maintenence of our boats as this keeps our fleet in good condition and keeps subscription charges low. This task has reduced considerably in recent year now that the Club runs a totally GRP fleet.

All members of the Dinghy Section can use the boats providing they are not being used for Club activities.

Cold Shock

You might think that the major risk when sailing dinghies in cold weather is hypothermia, and while it is a significant concern, it takes a while to get into trouble and there are lots of signs.

You can die in less than 60 seconds from cold shock. 

There are a few Cody Sailing Club sailors who, for the first time this year, are planning some daysails during the winter – if you are a member and interested in joining us, you know what to do. If you’re not a member and fancy a bit of fleet dinghy cruising in the beautiful waters of the Solent and local harbours, follow the “Join Now” link.

The excellent article with more information is from the RYA.
