Chichester Harbour Race Week - Glorious sun, wind and smiles

After four days of glorious sun, wind and smiles, the final day of Chichester Harbour Race Week ended with rain, mist and gusty squalls did not spoil a great week.HISC Bar for the CHRW Prizegiving -

With over 400 boats competing the Race Team took a wise decision to call "N over A" for the safety of the fleet.

The increase in entries, coupled with the excellent sailing conditions returned the 52 year old Chichester Harbour regatta to its best.

Robert MacDonald, Chairman and Principal Race Officer, is to be congratulated, alongside his extensive team of over 100 volunteers, for organising a superb week of racing.

A week with a great mix of socials and light hearted atmosphere both on and off the water.

His last duty was to conduct the prize giving for 19 fleets with generous support from:

Bentley Walker, ABC Marine & Leisure, Bainbridge Marine, Dream Or Two, Gill, Lennon Racewear, Optimum Time and Raymarine.
