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 behind East Head where sailing is restricted to approximately two hours either side of high water.
The club runs a programme of events both on and off the water from early May to the middle of October. Dinghy races are held on most weekends tide permitting. Racing is on a handicap basis with a slow and fast fleets. Cruises to one of the other clubs in the harbour, usually for lunch, are held mid-week throughout the season. During the school summer holidays events are organised for the juniors covering training, racing and destination sails all with an emphasis on having a good time.
The start of season membership pack is being prepared and will be distributed during the second week of March. Where possible the packs will be distributed by hand to the member’s address in West Wittering.
