Hi everyone, 


We are getting close to the start of our Junior sailing at Chipstead.  Please see the following information:


1) Junior website  https://junior.chipsteadsc.org.uk  Please all look at the website for further details on junior sailing 


2) Sat 1st April, 15th April and 22nd April Chipmates Topper Team Racing. No knowledge needed about team racing, it’s a great, fun skill to learn that will advance your sailing skills.  The event will be sailed in Club Topper 5.3 or 4.2 subject to weather conditions and size of the children.  No boat hire fees.  Open to all main fleet sailors who can sail a topper in a triangular course.  Please enter on Eventbrite and more details to follow.  


3) Sat 8th April Young Guns 2022 

This is the rescheduled end of 2022 Junior competition, open to all club members who can sail a triangular course, enter on Eventbrite.  


4) Sat 15th April OOD (running the racing) Training- whilst the children are on the
water Simon Yeates will be running an OOD training session to teach parents how to run the racing from the box.  PLEASE attend if you can, we can only continue running Chipmates if parents volunteer and learn these roles.  


5) KSSA 22nd April Opening Splash https://kssa.co.uk/event/2023-opening-splash-regatta/ This is the first regatta of the year at a great sea venue, Broadstairs.  There will be a rookie fleet for early racers with a shorter course and coach.  


6) Summer Camp 24-26th July – Booking not open yet. 



7) New calendar https://junior.chipsteadsc.org.uk/cc-events/chipmates-calendar-2023/


8) RYA courses Chipstead Sailing Club run RYA Youth Stages 1-4 which I strongly recommend for all junior sailors, it is organised through the Training Centre, not juniors. http://chipsteadsc.org.uk/index.php/information/training/booking-forms/

Happy Sailing
