Cody Sailing Club at Frensham Pond Sailing Club

 Frensham Pond Sailing Club

Our club boats are kept at Frensham Pond Sailing Club. As a member of Cody Sailing Club you are an associate member of FPSC and are entitled to use the Cody Sailing Club boats to sail on the pond. You may also join in FPSC activities such as race events etc, and FPSC have an exciting and busy race programme.

Membership of Cody Sailing Club does not entitle you to a berth at Frensham Pond Sailing Club. Several members of Cody SC are also members of FPSC, and keep their boats in the boat park. In order to keep a boat of your own at Frensham, you need separate membership with them.

Often at the end of an RYA Level 2 training course there’s a question of ‘what next?’ There are questions around what boat to buy, where to sail, how to take sailing to the next level (be it racing, cruising, seamanship). It’s often good to not make a hasty purchase, and this is where our presence at FPSC is to your advantage.

Frensham Pond is an ideal location to take your sailing skills from the end of an RYA Level 2 course, and practice in the safe waters of the pond. It will also allow you to mix with tremendously knowledgable members, and ask questions before choosing a vessel for yourself to purchase, and see what the benefits of a Sailing Club can bring you.

The membership of Cody Sailing Club (you need ‘Dinghy Section Membership’) is very reasonable, and it gets you shared use of any of the three vessels at Frensham Pond, associate membership of the club and access to a wide variety of dinghy sailing experts. The shared use is an important element to understand – if there is a call on the dinghies for an away-from-pond event, the away-from event will get priority, and yet most of the time not all dinghies are required for an away event.

Having joined as a Dinghy Section member you will need the current combination number to get into the FPSC compound, please contact the Cody Club Rear Commodore for details.

Weekday Evenings: There is a toilet and changing room facilities that we can use. Wednesday evening are Club night at Frensham Pond Club.

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.
