This year, there is a new Paddleboarding Class at Chipstead Sailing Club. Paddleboarding, or Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is the one of the fastest growing water sports in the world, and once you’ve tried it you will understand why! SUP is a great full body and core work out, and a brilliant way to explore the natural beauty of Chipstead lake. It’s perfect for people of all ages and fitness levels, and most importantly it’s great fun. At Chipstead, we can paddle all year round, from bright and sunny summers days, to the middle of winter if you are feeling brave.
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.

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.
