Chichester YC Visit

From 4 to 8 August Aquarius members can enter the Family Race Week at Chichester YC; some members will be sailing in the SigneT National Championships that is within Family Race Week. Come and enjoy open salt water sailing.

Entry fees range from £30 for adults with a 2 handed boat to £7.50 for under 16 with a single handed boat. A single day entry is £7 adult and £3.50 under 16. Harbour dues are £3.50 for up to a week. Notice of race detailsl (PDF 70kb) are on the AQSC web site.

Members can also visit and cruise on Sunday 3rd (no club racing) however temporary membership is costly (£10, £4 under 18, £2.50 boat) compared to Family Race Week; there may be a reduction as a member of AQSC so it is important  to bring your membership card. Please let Richard Cannon know if you expect to be going by ringing 01932 786636.

High tide varies from around 14:00 on Sunday to 17:14 on Friday. Launching is easy from 1½ hours before to 2½ hrs after high tide; launching becomes more difficult outside these times. See the AQSC web site and the Spring newsletter for more details
