Welcome to West Wittering Sailing Club

West Wittering Sailing Club was founded in 1950 by residents of West Wittering to cater for the sailing needs of the villagers. Members sail out of Snowhill Creek which is behind East Head at the entrance of Chichester Harbour.


The club’s season starts in in April (or around Easter, if earlier) and ends in early October. Dinghy races are held most weekends when the tide permits, mainly on a handicap basis. On suitable week days the cruising members sail down the harbour, on the tide, to one of the other clubs for lunch. During the school holidays there are a number of Junior training events along with a Junior Week which is a fun mixture of informal training, racing and destination sails.


West Wittering Sailing Club is an RYA Accredited Training Centre.
