In the light of the recent spate of visitors to the Chipstead Lake area, and the resultant unacceptable littering and unsocial behaviour of some visitors, the Sailing Club wishes to make it clear that both the lake and the land are a private facility.
Only members of Chipstead Sailing Club and those authorised by them are allowed to be on the Sailing Club premises.
CHIPSTEAD SC CORONAVIRUS REVISED PROTOCOL – 3rd June 2020
You may wish to print out this Protocol and take it with you if visiting the Club, in order to remind you of the requirements which must be met when using the Lake during the continuing restrictions.
Please be sure to observe the Government’s Social Distancing requirements at all times. The Club is regularly patrolled by the Police who have the power to administer fines.
The dinghy park will from Wednesday 13th May re-open for members who wish to sail, paddleboard, or radio-sail independently via their own means. Only members who have renewed their Club membership for 2020 will be allowed the use of the water, no guests should be brought on site. There will be no access to Club patrol boats, the Club winch, other equipment or changing/toilet facilities (save as provided below) and those who consider independent sailing etc. are referred to the provisions for such sailing set out in Club Bylaw 6 and the Notes on Sailing Safety in the Club Programme, particularly noting the following:
Confirmation that unfortunately the August RYA courses have had to be cancelled.
As a club member with some insight into the workings of our General Committee, I would like to give you a small insight into the work they have put into keeping our lovely club afloat. Safely working along Government and RYA Guidelines and keeping in mind Local restrictions.
The Committee in general have spent so many hours and days researching through the ever changing guidelines. Spending hours of their valuable time in extra meetings. Ordering posters. Attaching locks etc etc. Discussing the best format for Lockdown , Easing , Opening up and beyond. To my mind they have been amazing and I certainly would like to extend my appreciation and thanks. It would have brought down lesser mortals.
They certainly stood by the old adage - Stay calm and carry on!
For those who haven’t renewed yet.
You can do this from the personalised link in your renewal email sent on 29/12, or the Membership button at the top of this website page.
Please support your club at this difficult time.
