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 early May 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 sails 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 Junior Week which is a mixture of training, racing and destination sails.
The first event of 2017 is Beach Clearance starting at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday 18 March followed, in the evening by the Start of Season Supper in the Old House at Home. It will start at 18:30 so that those who want to can go onto Robin Smith's concert.
Thanks to Tom Richardson, navigating the final stretch of Snowhill Creek on a falling tide will be a little easier in 2017. The transit works by lining up the white post above the gabions with the lower (NE) chimney of South Nore House. At this point you will be in the centre of the channel.
