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 this part of the country have to offer?

We kick our 2023 season off with our annual GP14 open on 26th March. With a strong home GP14 fleet it would be great to have you all come along for our season opener.

For our next event we will be welcoming back the Phantom fleet for their Inland Championship on 15th/16th April. We can't wait to see a big fleet out on the lake again for what is sure to be a great event both on and off the water.

Shortly after on May 7th, the club welcomes back the Laser/ILCA fleet for the first time in over a decade. The club has a blossoming fleet with several young hot shots putting in some hard work, so why not come along and join in the fun on the day.

Our next event will be another returning fleet to the club. Historically Chase had quite a competitive Merlin Rocket fleet, so it will be great to have the countries premier fleet back at Chase on 25th June.

After a busy first half to the year the club then takes a little break from opens but with plenty going on for our members, it's going to be a great summer of sailing!

In September we welcome back the Lightning 368 fleet once again for their National Championship on September 16th/17th. After a great turnout for last years nationals, we hope to have a strong turnout and make it their biggest nationals yet!

Also on 16th September, we welcome back the Solo fleet for some more great racing and great cake.

Rounding out the year on 16th December will be the clubs annual Polar Pursuit Race. After a great event in 2022 (with no fog!) we hope you dodge that last minute Christmas shopping and join us for a pre-Christmas sail.
