After School Sailing 2023
West Wittering Sailing Club has always been a Club for local families but we were amazed to discover that many local children had never been able to enjoy getting out on the fantastic sailing waters of Chichester Harbour that is right on the school's doorstep. So in 2018 we started working with West Wittering School to provide children at our local school with the opportunity to try out sailing by visiting the Club after school on summer days when the tides are suitable. For some this may lead to their families deciding to join the Club but whether or not this happens, we feel all children benefit from experiencing the delights of Snowhill Creek and Chichester Harbour.
The requirements to fit in with the tide times and not to interfere with schooling have led to us identifying 3 sessions, each comprising 2 afternoon's of sailing:
- After School Sailing-1 (Thursday May 11 to Friday May 12),
- After School Sailing-2 (Thursday May 25 to Friday May 26), and
- After School Sailing-3 (Thursday June 8 to Friday June 9)
These events are open to any child attending West Wittering School. The Club will provide the boats, buoyancy aids, RYA accredited instructors and safety boats. Each of the events (i.e. 2 afternoons of sailing) will cost just £30. We are aiming at children with little or no prior sailing experience and so the events will only go ahead if weather conditions are suitable. For this reason we will only bill parents after the event has taken place.
All parents should have been contacted by WW School on how to book. If you have any questions please email us at Secretary.WWSC@outlook.com.
