What's on

A superb day out on the Awayday to Chichester Harbour. The best day's weather in the three years that we've been going. Five boats on the water. See the Gallery for some photos.

Current Series - Summer Series  starts on the 12th July and runs to the 23rd August.

Leisure sailing Sundays from 11am 

First Race starts around 12pm then two races after lunch. If you don't want to race just come and sail around.

The Summer's Wednesday Evening Sailing sessions have been extended until the end of August. They are an opportunity to take advantage of the longer evenings to practice sailing, to just have a quiet sail around the lake or even to have a race. We start around 6pm and aim to have the boats back in the compound by about 8.30pm when it's getting dark.





Diary Dates

Commodore's Day is on Sunday 6th September when we say thankyou to David, for being our Commodore, by having a bit of a party with some silly games on the water, some champagne and a barby.
