As well as the usual trips to the Isle of Wight for Cowes Week and Cowes Classic Week, the fleet enjoy racing three times a week from April to October run from Itchenor SC. The annual regattas hosted by the sailing clubs within Chichester Harbour are a particular highlight of the racing season. The race to Dell Quay is a delight as the fleet sails up the harbour with a backdrop of the spire of Chichester Cathedral.
