Alternative ways of paying – We have also been looking at methods of payment. We have decided to retain our existing options of cash, cheque and bank transfer (BACS or Faster Payments). Our preferred method is bank transfer and we would encourage members to set up an annual standing order to do the transfer automatically in early January to avoid the risk of forgetting.

Monthly Subscription – If you wish to pay your subscription monthly, this can be arranged, and we only accept monthly subscription if the subscription is set up to pay automatically throughout the year.

Dinghy Section – how to sail without owning a dinghy yourself

Dinghy Section (DS) Membership entitles you to sail on Club dinghy cruises, to sail the Club boats at Frensham and to hire any of the dinghies on a daily basis (given appropriate skill and experience). It is a non-equity fractional ownership scheme for access to the boats.

The DS fee is payable individually for DS members on an annual basis except for DS members children or dependants under 18. They may use the club boats with a suitably RYA qualified (see DS rule 5) parent or guardian who are DS members provided there is not the demand for spaces from other paid DS members.

There may be occasional events such as the annual Frensham Pond SC 10 hour race where the daily dinghy hire fee to non-DS members is waived. This is discretionary. For all other events the daily dinghy hire fee is payable where non-DS members use club boats.

Non-DS members assisting with club training or running club racing do not need to pay the daily dinghy hire fee at these events.

Notes

  • Sailors should be aware that Blue Green algae may on occasions be present in Frensham Pond during the summer months, and in that event appropriate safety measures will need to be taken. Respect the recommendations – the health implications following exposure can be horrible.
  • Best practice requires that participants on Club events disclose to the Club any medical condition or disability, affecting the safety of their participation or that of others whilst on any training course. Details of next-of-kin or other contact address must be provided above for notification in the event of an accident or medical emergency.
  • We expect any privately owned boat to be as seaworthy as our club boats, with appropriate insurance. Please ensure that your boat is seaworthy.
  • Dinghy Section members must be named in the membership application and obey club rules when using any boat.
  • If you are a new member you are welcome to join any time of the year. If you join after Summer Camp, your subscription will be good through to the end of the following year – 16 months for the price of 12.
  • The preferred method to pay subscriptions is by standing order as this simplifies club administration.

Club Rules

Members should be aware of and abide by the Constitution and Club Rules

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.
