Chichester Harbour Race Week 2017
21st - 25th August
On-line entries are now open
Chi Race Week 2016 is going to be a hard act to follow but we are giving it our best shot!
401 entries and 625 individual competitors from 53 clubs mean that Race Week is one of the biggest local regattas in the UK and very probably in the world. Success brings its own challenges and our army of volunteers are already working hard to make sure that you, the competitor, have the best possible experience both on and off the water in 2017.
Chi Race Week means enjoying good racing and shore-side fun in a relaxed atmosphere. But one video is worth a thousand words so do take a look at our collection to find out what The Week is all about.
Looking forward to seeing you in August.
The Regatta Committee

Chichester Harbour Race Week 2017
21st - 25th August
What an epic regatta Chi Race Week 2016 turned out to be. Ok, the weather binned Day 5 but for four days we enjoyed champagne sailing with warm sunshine, breezes to suit all and lots of off-the-water activity.
The numbers are awesome - 401 entries mean that Race Week is almost certainly the biggest dinghy regatta in the UK and quite possibly the biggest in the world. 625 individual competitors from 53 clubs; Olympic medallists to absolute beginners; ages from 8 to 80s. 20 fleets, 57 classes, 89 races made for a great celebration of dinghy sailing and truly a regatta to remember.
This website is now going quiet until the New Year while the regatta committee plan for 2017. Meanwhile you can relive 2016 via Results and News for daily reports and excellent videos.
