CSC cannot accept any new Junior Family membership applications and this is now unavailable online until further notice.
Our Saturday morning Chipmates Junior Club is regularly oversubscribed and the Chipmates Summer Camp is full, as are our RYA training courses.
Applicants for Full Family membership should note that any Juniors within their family, who are competent to do so, will be able to crew or helm their own boat during the rest of our sailing programme but will not be eligible to participate in Saturday morning activities for juniors.
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.
I thought I would take this opportunity to provide an overview of the Junior Class plans moving forward this year.
We are aware that everyone is keen to return to sailing and we are still on track as per the clubs sailing programme to resume Junior Class activities from 3rd April 2021 (see below and here).
