West Wittering Sailing Club was founded in 1950 by residents of West Wittering, near Chichester in West Sussex, England, to cater for the sailing needs of West Wittering villagers. Members sail out of Snowhill Creek, when the tide permits, and organise dinghy races for a wide range of boats. There is an active cruising section and a full programme of fun events both on and off the water which start in early May and continue on through October.

The Summer Party and BBQ will now take place on Saturday 3rd August 2013 starting at 6:00 p.m. The original date of the 17th August clashed with another event taking place in the village.
The problem with displaying the Club Programme in calendar format has now been fixed. You will see that the format is slightly different. There is now an option to link the calendar into Microsoft Outlook or any similar calendar programme that has an Internet Calendar option. Click on the View ICS menu option and follow the instructions.
The Race Office Training and Practice Races on Sunday 28th April was well attended and was deemed a success by all. Six starts and finishes were held before the cold northerly wind got the better of everyone. The slides used in the morning session can be found here
There are still a number of vacancies for race officer and safety boat crew so members please go to DutyMan and volunteer.
A couple of minor changes have been made to the Sailing Instructions published in this year's handbook. The most significant concerns the way average points are calculated for those doing race duties. The new Sailing Instructions apply from the 1st May 2013.
The Portsmouth Yardsticks Numbers for 2013 are published on the Racing page.
The application form for Junior Week and the various training sessions can be downloaded from the Junior page.
