Chipstead Topper Open and L&SE Topper Traveller
Jane Marshall – 5th October 2021
40 eager Topper sailors from both Chipstead Sailing Club and the London & South East area arrived with the expectation of wet and windy conditions for the latest in the ITCA Traveller Series. As often is the case, the forecast didn’t apply to Chipstead, and a postponement was raised by race office Bob Murrell, whilst they all waited for the inevitable wind to arrive.
A minutes silence was held before racing started to remember old friends
9 Boats took part in a mixed bag of weather conditions. Wind was all over the place so the start was sometimes a running start, sometimes a tacking start and even on one occasion it was different at both ends of the line. Th temperature was cool and the sun came out on two short bursts.
The club has a new weather station that is linked to the Club's website.
PADDLE BOARD MEMBERSHIP

For Paddle board Training and Information contact:
A great few hours had by all. We had some relay races, using milk bottles instead of batons. Requiring participants to make up 4 teams. Only one boat of each team, on the water at a time. They had to sail a course returning to shore. Handing over baton and then pushing next team member off as hard as they could.
Twenty Five sailors arrived at the Chipstead Sailing Club lake to contest the annual mid week IOM Open Meeting. In total 16 visiting sailors made the journey to Chipstead demonstrating an appetite for competitive sailing. This included a significant turnout from Emsworth of 8 sailors.
