Chichester Harbour is the the perfect base for cruising of all types. The sheltered harbour provides many day sail destinations, with beautiful views around every corner. The open waters of the Solent offer many cruising options, with access to some of the best marinas in the UK. For the more adventurous sailing to the continent is possible from chichester, with many members of the club travelling across to Brittany in the summer.



  • Yacht Cruising: The highly popular Cruising in Company programme offers the chance for yacht owners to sail and meet others at pre-booked destinations, either locally on the South Coast or across the Channel. The packed programme runs from April to October and includes weekend and mid-week cruises together with longer excursions outside the Solent.

    Cruising in Company is a very enjoyable, relaxed and sociable activity with opportunities for meeting others, making new friends and sharing the wealth of knowledge of sailing that exists within the Club. It has the added bonus of going places you might not think of, with assistance and advice never far away.
