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.

Bosham Camp – Twice to Dell Quay

On Friday a couple of boats made a tour of the harbour, from Cobnor up to Dell Quay, then on the ebb to HISC and out of the harbour, then back to Cobnor on the early flood, arriving as the sun went down.
The evening social was lovely, around communal BBQ’s which then turned into camp fires (far enough off the ground to leave the the grass unharmed).
Saturday the camp started in full, and at 11am, 5 boats sailed to Dell Quay, in the flood through the moorings against the easterly wind. We were made very welcome at Dell Quay SC, and sat on their sunny verandah, eating lasagna and cake. The return journey was a drift for most of the way, with a southerly wind picking up near Deep End, so we decided to run to Bosham for an ice cream. We arrived at Bosham SC’s concrete slipway in the teeth of the ebb tide, gained ice cream and made the beat through the moorings for home just as the fierce ebb was slowing, arriving at about 17:00.
The evening was again a lovely gathering, with two members joining us for the campfire on the field from their yacht that they sailed around from Portsmouth. We finally found out how one of them broke their finger.
Sunday morning saw six boats head out into a westerly wind, and the spring flood was too fierce with the little wind to make out to Chalkdock, so we settled happily for Dell Quay again, with the wind from completely the other direction. A dead run in very light winds, and the sea breeze built behind us and we arrived at Dell Quay at noon. Fortunately their racing fleet was just away and we were welcomed for a second lunchtime to DQSC’s verandah, more lasagna, piri-piri chicken and lashing of hot tea and coffee. We left at the top of the tide, 13:20, and the breeze stiffened to a F3 for the beat through Chichester Pool, and the reach along Itchenor Reach and back to the camp.
All this on both days was in horizon to horizon sunshine, and dry sailing in shorts and t-shirts.
Good weather, good company and lovely sailing.
