CHIPSTEAD SAILING CLUB – RE-OPENING
The really great news is that the current guidance allows us to run our summer programme in its entirety! Unsurprisingly there will be restrictions applying to the use of the Clubhouse (especially changing rooms), Bar and Catering Facilities. The Government’s rules on Social Distancing and group size must be obeyed at all times, but we must hope that their hope of total relaxation by late June is realised.
The highlights are:
Here are two documents giving details:
We expect that TriSwim and Bromley Canoe Club will also recommence operation at the lake, as laid out in our Programme.
All the training courses for August are now full.
The timely relaxation of the COVID rules meant that Chipstead SC were able to run the 2021 Graduate open meeting on 9th May. In common with previous years it was a shared event with the Herons.

The generally perceived wisdom is that Chipstead’s Laser Open is always sailed in light to non-existent winds which also come from a grotty direction. NOT THIS YEAR!
My did it blow! It was cold (very!) It came from the North East constantly (with, of course, the odd shift – it wouldn’t be Chipstead otherwise!).
I am sure that you will be really looking forward to the start of our Summer Sailing Season after what seems like an eternity away from the Club. It is great to see so many membership renewals, and this has certainly helped in completing our duty rosters. We have also had quite a few new members who joined at the end of last season as well as recently this year. You are all very welcome.
I would like to draw your attention to a few features of our extensive 2021 Summer Sailing Programme.
