Working with Harbour Users for Harbour users
Goodwill and fellowship between all members
Social, cruising and racing events under the flag of the federation
Chichester Federation’s (ChiFed) stewardship is vital to the smooth organisation of a huge programme of racing in a harbour where over 10,000 boats are registered. By our agreement with the Harbour Master, using the marks listed and adhering to Chifed’s Racing Regulations, and with an annual programme of racing fixtures agreed, our member clubs enjoy a light level of authority which is the envy of clubs elsewhere.
Under the 1971 Chichester Harbour Act ChiFed is required to nominate 4 serving members for the Chichester Harbour Conservancy Advisory Committee and 2 Conservancy board members, so we represent our members by playing a key role in managing our harbour and uniquely for any other harbour in the UK, the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
