Welcome to Frensham Pond Sailing Club. Based on a beautiful lake in South West Surrey, the club welcomes new members, both experienced sailors and those wishing to learn. If you would like to find out more, please look further at our website or why not take the opportunity to visit and talk with the club manager or the clubs members. Frensham Pond is a club for all ages, all abilities and all seasons.
It was a grand day out at the Frensham Pond Superprix. With a cloudless sky and a decent breeze thirty six boats representing the Club’s dinghy spectrum entered this fun and really beneficial competition. After the briefing by Race Officer Tim Hemsley, it was straight onto the water for the first of five morning races. After lunch the wind picked up a little and a further five races were run.
Tim presented prizes to the winners of each category as follows:
Not So Fast: Tessa Watkiss
Medium & Overall Superprix Winner: Tim Deacon
Fast: Nick Royse
The 2012/2013 Handbook is now available and can be collected from the Club Manager during normal racing hours or between 12am and 2pm on Mondays and Thursdays.

Frensham Pond, often known as the ‘home of champions’ is a ‘great place to get to grips with the relationship of wind and rig, and with lots of mark rounding practice’ says Nick Craig the 2011 Yachtsman of the Year – it will be a great warm up for the season ahead.
Any support team will be welcome and we have a great Clubhouse to watch the racing from (free wifi and plenty of sockets for your lap tops), and if you are feeling fit there is a great walk round the ‘Pond’.
The Briefing on Sunday is at 1015. The first race will be at 1100. There will be three races, one before lunch then two back to back after lunch with two to count. Prize giving and free tea will be about 1600.

Hope to see you on Sunday 1st April.
