Itchenor Sailing Club is launching a new accessible sailing experience for those looking to enjoy dinghy sailing in a relaxed atmosphere. Set in the beautiful Chichester Harbour, Itchenor Sailing Club has a 90-year history and benefits from being one of the few Clubs in the Harbour which can offer sailing at all states of the tide.

The Club has this year invested in three brand new 2000 dinghies that can be booked by members on a whole or half day basis from Wednesday to Sunday throughout the season. Ideal for beginners, family sailing and training, the Club's new fleet will give more people the opportunity to get out on the water and enjoy all the Club has to offer without having to own a boat.

Designed for families, couples and individuals looking to get involved in the sport for the first time or those wanting a stepping stone to get back into sailing, the 2000s can be used for exploring Chichester Harbour and basic training as well as fun racing if required. The 2000 Experience comes with weekly activities and events including training, cruising, beach picnics, racing and regattas, allowing members to have fun whilst developing their sailing skills and meeting other likeminded sailors.

All those interested in joining this relaxed sailing programme at Itchenor can enjoy a special introductory members' offer for the first year and free first use of one of the Club's 2000 dinghies. Those who have yet to reach the required level to take a boat out on their own, will receive a free half day training session or alternatively they can join one of the various RYA training weekends that the Club runs.

This is a great opportunity to join this prestigious Club in one of the most beautiful parts of the South Coast and take advantage of the delightful Clubhouse with its restaurant, bar and accommodation, and the many events that take place.

To find out more about joining the new 2000 Experience at Itchenor visit www.itchenorsc.co.uk or call 01243 512400.
