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.



Emsworth Cruising Association are planning a “Raid” to celebrate their 50th Anniversary, to take place over the weekend of May 21 -22.  A good explanation of a “Raid” can be found on Wikipedia!  Small boat enthusiasts, (members and visitors) are encouraged to join in the fun and visitors should launch at the Itchenor Hard.  This is the programme:  Saturday morning – sail to Bosham Sailing Club for lunch; return to Itchenor Sailing Club for dinner; Sunday morning – sail up to Dell Quay Sailing Club for lunch.

For more information, please phone the Commodore, Charles Harrison, on 07808 911511

Chichester Harbour Race Week

Welcome to Race Week 2016
15th – 19th August
probably the best dinghy regatta on the south coast

What do we all look for in a summer dinghy week?

A top flight venue

Interesting and challenging racing

Excellent race management

Shoreside fun

Perfect weather

Chi Race Week gives you these and more though of course we can’t guarantee the weather!

Based at Hayling Island Sailing Club, an RYA Centre of Excellence, and sailed in the tidal yet sheltered waters of Chichester Harbour, Race Week gives visitors a new sailing experience while local sailors test their skills against rival clubs. Free parking for cars, boats and non-sailors; warm showers, cold beers and sandy beaches.

And most important it’s a regatta, not a championship. The atmosphere is relaxed; the emphasis is on enjoying your sailing. Think of it as club racing on a grand scale.

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.
