2020 Spring Working Party postponed
Find all the latest news and developments going on at the club both on-the-water and off-the-water from racing information, member news, committee developments, picture and video galleries to social events. Frensham Pond also has its own very 'local' weather forecasting service so if you want to know the wind speed, whether it’s frozen or if you can pick up a tan …it’s all here
Internet fraudsters seem to be particularly active during the current emergency. Some of us have recently received some very strange emails. I have therefore checked with our Internet Service Provider that our defences are in place and up to date and indeed they are.
However this does not prevent a fraudster opening a gmail or hotmail account in the name of one of our club officials and sending out malicious emails.
If in doubt about an email, phone the supposed sender. Don’t click on links in strange emails. Don’t go into any websites that your browser says are malicious. And be very sceptical of any email involving payments.
Training Course Cancellations due to Covid-19 Coronavirus
Regrettably due to the current Covid-19 Coronavirus situation, the following training courses have been cancelled:
Emails will be sent out to all those affected as soon as practicable explaining how refunds can be claimed.
The following courses are still scheduled. However, it is possible that they may be cancelled due to Covid-19. A decision will be made and communicated prior to the end of May. No further bookings are being taken for these courses.

The recent announcement by the Prime Minister that ""We need people to start working from home where they possibly can. And you should avoid travel, pubs, clubs, theatres and other such social venues" has left the Committee with no alternative to suspending all organised activities at Frensham Pond Sailing Club for the foreseeable future.
With immediate effect all dinghy racing, training, coaching, workshops, Model Yacht Group and Sailability and any other organised activities at Frensham Pond Sailing Club are postponed until further notice. Some casual sailing may be permitted on the Pond for maintaining fitness after appropriate reviews are carried out. This will be advised by an update to this notice.
This isn't a decision which was taken lightly as club sailing is instrumental in providing hundreds of youngsters and able and disabled sailors of all ages and walks of life with a sport where the encouragement of self reliance and risk assessment is at the core of what we do.
Arrangements for those booked on training courses are being reviewed over the next week or so and alternative arrangements will be put in place.
The Club will keep events and governmental guidance under review and will issue a further update as and when there are any substantive changes to this notice.
