Chichester Yacht Club welcomes new members and you do not need to have any experience or to own a boat to join. Our members will be very pleased to provide guidance and support to allow you to build your skills and confidence.
As well as a wide selection of Club dinghies available for members, there are also crewing opportunities for those who do not own their own boat and who wish to get more experience and an understanding of different types of boat before deciding to buy one of their own.
For those interested in dinghy sailing, a good starting point for many is to take an RYA course and here at Chichester Yacht Club we can help you with this. We offer RYA courses for junior beginners and improvers. For adult members looking to take up dinghy sailing for the first time or wishing to get back into sailing, the Club offers the opportunity to book 1-2-1 lessons with some of our RYA trained dinghy instructors. The lessons are booked by private arrangement for maximum flexibility and in order to keep the costs down. The next step is to join one of our club coaching sessions. More information can be found under Dinghy Training.
Many of our members who learned to sail at Chichester Yacht Club have progressed to compete at national and international level and the Club is pleased to have trained a number of its own instructors.
We can also help and advice on Yacht and Power Boat training. So if you are keen to get into boating, contact us and we can help you find the way. More on start boating from the RYA
