Chichester Cruiser Racing Club

Chichester Cruiser Racing Club provides high quality, low cost and sociable racing for yachts based in and around Chichester Harbour. We have introduced many cruiser owners to the fun and competition of yacht racing and cruising in company with support and advice from the club. Our members have a wide range of yacht sizes and classes as well as all levels of racing and cruising experience, so you don’t need a performance yacht or equipment nor a hotshot crew. Our programme includes weekend races in Hayling Bay and the Solent plus an annual cross-Channel race and cruise in company; and weekend races usually have social events at local yacht clubs. Joining a CCRC event and becoming a member is easy. You could even participate in a race as a guest and for our Beta fleet we can provide a suitable handicap number.
