WSCC Meeting - March 2017

Chichester Yacht Club was the absolute perfect location for our workshops, the hospitality we received at the Club was excellent. The Upper Deck served as a fantastic, light, airy room overlooking the harbour and is very conductive for this type of event.

Nothing was to much trouble for the team and I would not hesitate to recommend this as a venue for workshops and conferences. It is extremely competitively priced in comparison with venues in the area.
