Chelmarsh Sailing Club can offer you a variety of different sailing classes, each organised into different fleets. Each class has its own Fleet Captain who can provide more in depth information about events, the boats themselves, race schedules and special events. The captains can offer help and guidance with your boat, tips and training information for both members and visitors. Sailing at Chelmarsh can be as relaxed or as competitive as you wish and you will always have someone at your level to sail with.
At present we currently operate a range of fleets. Demand for the different fleets varies so it is always a good idea to contact the club for more information about what is available, as we do have a ‘menagerie’ fleet too!
