No need for experience, just a group of like minded females wanting to enjoy the great experience of sailing. Whether you want to learn from scratch, assess what they learnt years ago, or enjoyed crewing and want to learn how to helm.
It’s a morning of fun, activity and comradeship. Once we have “put the boats to bed” we enjoy a cuppa and homemade cake, looking out over our beautiful lake.

This year’s Chipstead Laser Open, part of the South East Laser Grand Prix Circuit was blessed with some wind, but regrettably generally from a northerly direction which created some large holes and shifts making conditions difficult for not only the Race Officer in setting courses, but for the record turnout of 15 visiting boats supplemented by 10 Club boats.
Holly MacAskill, a member of Chipstead Sailing Club, has been awarded a Coaching Bursary from the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Youth Training Fund. The Coaching Bursary, for young sailors up to the age of 23, funds attendance at an RYA Race Coach Level 2 course and is intended to develop the skills of accomplished young racers towards coaching others.
At the 2019 Dinghy Show Alex Yeates was awarded an RYA Regional Certificate of Achievement as part of the RYAs Regional Youth Champions Awards.
The RYA has been running these awards for the past two years with the aim of rewarding individuals who have demonstrated hard work, commitment and determination to succeed in their sport. Nominees for the awards must have shown success on the racecourse, whether at local, national or international level.
Excellent news for Chipstead and Wealden Sailability sailors in 2019, there have been some major pontoon developments completed this spring.
For ease of understanding, the pontoons are known as numbers 1 to 4, 1 being the westernmost and 4 the easternmost.
Wealden Sailability (WS) have had major concerns for a few years now about the quality of the fenders on 3 & 4 (and the resultant damage to boats) and the fact that No.4 is sinking at its outboard end. WS however does recognise that this is an issue of more concern to them than it is to CSC.
