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.

It’s coming home – Location change for RYA Dinghy Show 2021 – Farnborough Hampshire

The location of the RYA Dinghy Show will change for 2021.
The venue for 2021 is the Farnborough Exhibition Centre – yes, the airfield which is the spiritual home of Cody Sailing Club. In 1948 the staff of the establishment banded together to create a club in order to get themselves a “Windfall” yacht from the UK Government. 73 years later, the RYA Dinghy Show is coming to our patch.
A review has been conducted by the RYA and the location for the show is a significant consideration. They have assessed London, Northern and Midland centres, and have scored the possible venues and made a choice.
Travel is a big consideration, public transport is better than at Alexandra Palace, as well as better WiFi, and getting in and out is easier. With 3500 free parking spaces, and good transport links it is expected to be a better experience that at Alexandra Palace (although it’s not all about the venue – if the train companies ran trains it would have very much helped).
The date for next year is 27th and 28th February 2021.
After 25 years at Alexandra Palace, this will be quite a shock for some exhibitors, and I think it could not be more convenient for us 🙂
All the dinghies with high masts will be along one side as the roof is shaped like a wing with higher and lower ceiling heights.
The price for the stand will be the same for exhibitors as this year. There are opportunities for some exhibitors to expand their space, as the Dinghy Show as it currently is will occupy only 2/3rds of the available space.
