• Bosham SC

We are the oldest of the harbour wide organisations, formed in 1924 when, with only four clubs sailing, the need for regulation to avoid disputes became apparent. Over 90 years later, with 15 active clubs, the harbour is recognised not only as the busiest for dinghy and keelboat racing in the UK, but possibly in the world.  

The number of boats entering for the Fed’s Chichester Harbour Race Week makes it consistently the most well attended open regatta in the country.
ChiFed’s 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 with an annual programme of racing fixtures agreed,  our member club 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.

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 2019.

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.
