Due to the Covid restrictions we can’t run the organised social events, but if the weather is good we hope to have some socially distanced evenings in the club.

Note: the changing rooms are currently Closed so competitors should arrive ready to sail.



To make running the racing as seamless as possible whilst adhering to COVID 19 guidelines and social distancing we ask that you follow the below steps with regard to entry, competing and finishing.


1) We encourage competitors to enter online on the CYC website or by messaging your Name, Class, Fleet and Sail Number on the CYC Dinghy racers WhatsApp group. Please note there will be no sign on sheets available on the day

2) The RO’s intention is to abandon if necessary will be publicised on WhatsApp one hour before the first start time.

3) We remind you that there is limited safety cover so please only compete if you feel competent with the conditions on the day, please refresh your memories on the SI’s Risk Statement

4) The course will be published on the CYC Dinghy racers Whatsapp no later than 30 mins before the start. The RO will, if weather permits,try to also display this outside the Sloop but please do not rely on this method

5) Racing will be in the confines of the Chichester Lake and will be within Eyesight of the Race Box.
