Sailing

From novice to national, even world champions, Frensham Pond Sailing Club has plenty of appeal for sailors of all levels. There are over 10 classes of boats sailed at the club including model yachts for those who want to keep their feet firmly on the ground. The club prides itself on its vibrant youth programmes and was delighted when one of its former members, Nick Craig, won YJA Pantaenius Yachtsman of the Year 2012. But whatever the level of your ambition, whether it be purely 'halcyon' or 'olympian', all are welcome.

Directions

Approaching from the South

Follow the A3 until it becomes single carriageway and continue to the traffic lights at Hindhead. Turn left (North) on the the A287. After about 4 miles you will pass through the village of Churt. Continue for a further mile and a half and turn left at a sign to the Frensham Pond Hotel. This is Pond Lane and the club is about 200yds along this road on the right.

Approaching from the North or East

Take the A3 to Guildford (or the A331 from Junction 4 of the M3) and then the A31 Westbound. Follow the A31 Farnham Bypass until you reach traffic lights. Turn left here (signposted Hindhead and A287). Pass some shops and bear right over the level crossing. Follow signs for Hindhead. These signs will direct you to a right-hand turn and then a left-hand turn until you are on the A287 proper. Frensham Pond is a further 3 miles on the right. Drive past the pond and take the next right turn marked Frensham Pond Hotel. The club is about 200yds along this road on the right.

For drivers approaching from London on summer weekend mornings, there can be long delays both at the traffic lights at Farnham and at Hindhead. An alternative route is to take the A3 beyond Guildford and turn right at signs for Thursley (take great care turning right across oncoming traffic - be patient). Follow the road through Thursley and turn left at a T-junction. Follow this winding road for a couple of miles until you reach a cross-roads. Go straight across and continue along another winding road until you reach a T-junction. This is the A287 from Hindhead. Turn right and the turning for the club is a further 1/2 mile on the left.

Approaching from the West

Follow the A31. You cannot turn directly onto the A287. The simplest route is to continue along the A31 past this turning to the large roundabout at the eastern end of Farnham. Drive around the roundabout and return in the opposite direction and then follow the directions for approaching from the East above.
