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.

Chichester Harbour Daysail – Sunday 18th July

The forecast was for glorious sunny and hot weather, but light winds. With the prospect of a nice sea breeze due to the warm weather, six Cody sailors headed down to Chichester harbour for a sail from Itchenor to see where the wind took us. The one thing that was predictable was the tide. A late morning low allowed for a sail (or a possible drift) out to towards the harbour entrance and back with the tide.

David Gradwell and new member James fresh from the Level 1&2 training course at Frensham sailed in the Clubs shiny White Trio. Keith and Louis in a Sport 14 and Anna and Simon in Simons not quite so shiny Brown trio (was originally red once before it got a sun tan!)

Due to the hot weather the road to east head was packed and so was the carpark at Itchenor but we just got the last few car park spaces, phew! It was a relief to finally get on the water after a very hot time setting up. The sea breeze kicked in nicely on cue and it was a lovely sail. We stopped at the Hayling sailing club for lunch which was very pleasant and then sailed out of the harbour not quite making it to the bar with the wind dropping and tide turning, before returning on a broad reach back to Itchenor. It was a nice day out, Chichester harbour is lovely, and it was good to see the Club white trio have an outing and enjoy the sunny weather. Itchenor is a good place to launch but best to get there early on a weekend in summer with good weather.
