These are some photos of the Top Dog Trophy here taken on Sunday 27th October.
The results for races are here.
On Saturday 10th October Robert Daws was presented with a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Lifetime Commitment Award by Ian Walker, MBE, the President of Chipstead Sailing Club and Director of Racing at the RYA. Ian himself sailed at Chipstead from the age of 8 and attended Sevenoaks School, before establishing his racing career.
Usually this would have been awarded by Princess Anne at an event in London, however Covid has meant a move to local presentation.
Rob Daws’ father had been one of the early members of the club in 1953 and Rob started sailing at Chipstead in 1954, with his sisters crewing for him. He became a full member in 1956 and has been a member ever since.
AMENDED TRACK AND TRACE PROCEDURE
On each separate occasion you come to the Club, either at weekends or during the week, for whatever reason you should now comply with the Track and Trace procedure by:
Scanning the NHS QR code displayed on the Clubhouse window to the left of the Clubhouse front door, or displayed on the Committee Room door (the first door on your right as you enter the Clubhouse), using your NHS Covid-19 App on your mobile phone. You will first need to download the NHS Covid-19 App from the App Store or Google Playstore onto your mobile phone.
BY SENDING AN EMAIL not more than 2 days in advance to:
in the following manner:
In the TITLE of the email put your own name AND the date of attendance in dd/mm/yyyy format.
In the BODY of the email put the following information:
The General Committee felt it may be helpful to give some guidance for the use of the Club grounds and water when the Clubhouse is NOT open and there is no organised racing planned.
This Protocol can be downloaded here.
Further to our previous communications, as members will be aware, it is intended to recommence Organised Racing again as from Saturday 1st August 2020, and as from the same date re-open the Clubhouse at weekends, albeit at first on a limited basis.
Members will appreciate that in order to comply with the Government restrictions still in place, a considerable number of changes will need to be made in our Procedures both off and on the water.
A reminder to all Club members that the Kitchen will be open on Saturdays and Sundays serving food as per the attached Menu at the times set out thereon.
In addition, the caterers will be adding a hot main meal as a menu special each week at only £5.
All being well, the kitchen will also be selling chocolates and other sweets.
At the hours the kitchen is open, facilities will also be made available for members to make their own teas and coffees from a table outside the Clubhouse front door by the Courseboard.
To assist the caterers, please if possible pre-order your food on coming to the Club.
Finally can I remind members that the much preferred payment method for BOTH the Kitchen AND the Bar is by card, and members are especially asked to assist in this regard, which also helps with Covid-19 precautions.
Please support our caterers in their efforts to provide a valuable service for Club members in these difficult times, by making as much use of the kitchen as possible.
And I am sure the same goes for the Bar as well!
