Ideas to help Chichester Harbour

Built up over several years through successful Chichester Harbour Race Weeks, the Federation has some £10,000 in reserves. The Federation has traditionally financially supported a number of Harbour Initiatives for the benefit of all Harbour users, the Out of Harbour Marks, Chimet and Cambermet being three prime examples. Some provision has been made to continue to support these in the future.
The Federation is inviting ideas:
  1. up to a total of £10,000
  2. for Harbour wide initiatives
  3. to benefit a significant group of Harbour users across several organisations
  4. a capital grant without ongoing commitment

Initial ideas should be submitted by the 18th of February 2018 for the consideration initially by the Officers of the Federation and Chairman’s committee and discussion/approval at the Spring General Meeting.

Please submit your idea to the Federation by email to: ideas@chifed.org

Chichester Harbour Race Week 2018 August 13th – 17th

Welcome to Race Week 2018 

On-line entry will open in the new year and the NOR will be posted by then, giving details of the programme, class starts and handicap categories. Please visit the Race Week website for details of the host venue Hayling Island SC, tips on how to win races in Chichester Harbour, photos, places to stay and activities for non-sailors when they’re not enjoying a panoramic view of the racing from HISC’s balcony. The early-bird entry discount will be repeated in 2018.

If you haven’t yet made up your mind where to go for a great week’s racing next summer, remember that Chichester Race Week is a regatta, not a championship. The atmosphere is relaxed; the emphasis is on enjoying your sailing. Think of it as elite club racing on a grand scale. We look forward to seeing you.
