After a quiet couple of years, Chase Sailing Club is back up to speed with a bumper year ahead.

The Chase Sailing Club is a great central location for all visitors, set in the beautiful surroundings of Chasewater country park boasting a 900-hectare reservoir which will offer some very exciting, tight racing. With plenty to do in the surrounding area why not bring the family along too and enjoy everything the club and the part have to offer.

First up we have the GP14 areas on 26th/27th March, where we hope to see a great turnout in preparation for this year's world championship in Ireland. With this being the first major event of the year, why not come and hone your skills.

After what will be a busy summer, we welcome back the Lightning 368 fleet for their national championship on September 24th/25th. After a great turnout for last years Inland championships, we hope to have a strong turnout and make it their biggest nationals yet!

Joining them on the 24th September, will be the Solo fleet, making a return to the club after many years away. With a strong midland fleet, we can't wait to have them back.

In October, we welcome back the Phantom fleet, another fleet that the club can't wait to have back on the water. With a strong home fleet, the club hope for some great racing on the day.

Wrapping up the year will be our annual Polar Pursuit Race (17th December). Having had a great turn out in 2021 only to have it cancelled by fog, we hope you can join us for a pre-Christmas sail.

  • 26th/27th March GP14 Midland Areas
  • 24th/25th September: Lightning 368 Nationals
  • 24th September: Solo Open
  • 9th October: Phantom Open
