Event Details - Chichester Harbour Race Week 2023

Hayling Island Sailing Club

14th - 18th August 2023

One of the biggest and best dinghy regattas on the UK’s South Coast, Race Week has something for everyone from weekend sailors to Olympic medallists.

It’s not a championship, it’s a regatta and that means first class racing in a relaxed atmosphere. With class starts and handicap fleets, the tidal yet sheltered waters of Chichester Harbour see locals chasing places and visitors finding new challenges.

Come and enjoy quality race management, bands, parties, sandy beaches, or just sit back and take in the scene from Hayling Island Sailing Club’s famous balcony.



The event website - - is the Official Notice Board. Online entries open there on 1 May.

Last year 15 Optimists competed in Race Week. This year we look forward to welcoming even more!

This event is not currently open for entries.
