Originating with four clubs in 1924, the Chichester Harbour Federation has grown to a total of 35 harbour organisations, representing the major users of the harbour. The Federation plays a prominent role in the management of Chichester Harbour and also in organising Chichester Harbour Race Week (Fed Week), one of the most popular dinghy regatta weeks, attracting in excess of 300 entries each year.

What an epic regatta Chi Race Week 2016 turned out to be. Ok, the weather binned Day 5 but for four days we enjoyed champagne sailing with warm sunshine, breezes to suit all and lots of off-the-water activity.

The numbers are awesome – 401 entries mean that Race Week is almost certainly the biggest dinghy regatta in the UK and quite possibly the biggest in the world. 625 individual competitors from 53 clubs; Olympic medallists to absolute beginners; ages from 8 to 80s. 20 fleets, 57 classes, 89 races made for a great celebration of dinghy sailing and truly a regatta to remember.

Powers of Direction

We have been pleased to support the Chichester Harbour Conservancy’s application for “Powers of Direction” the modern alternative to Byelaws. Once established like Byelaws they carry the force of law. They were introduced as part of the Marine Navigation Act 2013. The Chichester Harbour Conservancy as Harbour Authority can use them to regulate vessels within the harbour.

Terror no longer threatened

A Memorandum of Understanding is being signed between the Conservancy and Friends of Chichester Harbour to secure the future of Terror for at least a further 3 years as a sailing boat for hire or charter.
