Right now we continue to be in lockdown. The RYA typically take a couple of days after an announcement to interpret the new guidance as it applies to sailing clubs. As soon as we have clarity from the RYA, and worked out how best to plan events, we will publish a calendar of events which will operate within the requirements anticipated at the time. Updated 22nd February 2021
Sailing and racing at Frensham Pond SC
In light of the latest Government announcements and the RYA’s initial guidance on their impact on sailing we regret that FPSC is closed with immediate effect.
We will continue to take note of and follow the RYA’s guidance as it is updated, but it seems unlikely that there will be a material change to the position for some time.
Sailing at SSC
As many of you may already know, with Southampton (and most of Hampshire) being in a Tier 4 lockdown area, normal activities are somewhat curtailed.
Unfortunately this includes the club so the clubhouse is now locked down which means no access to the toilets or changing rooms. Likewise, because of Tier 4 restrictions, you should limit your visits to the compound to essential maintenance only.
Hopefully we will move through this phase fairly quickly and life will return to something like normal. In the meantime, thank you for your perseverance and here’s hoping for a better 2021.
Cody SC Activities
Since the requirements state that you must not leave, or be outside of your home except where necessary, all face to face sailing activities are paused for the moment. Club Activities over Zoom are continuing.

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 club and personally owned sailing dinghies. Bring-your-own canoes, windsurfers and Stand-Up Paddlers are welcome. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I for one take great comfort when sailing with Cody friends knowing that there is an intent and experience to give assistance to others.
I love sailing because there is always something to learn. I love dinghy sailing because it’s so immediate.
Thanks to all for 3 great days of sailing and especially to everyone who has worked tirelessly to make the weekend possible
Thanks for a great couple of days!
