Cruiser Racing

The club has introduced many owners of cruisers (and cruiser/racers) to the fun and competition of yacht racing.

Club members race a wide range of cruiser types (all monohulls) and sizes; with differing levels of equipment and ages of hull.

Full and friendly assistance is offered to those new to cruiser racing and we all learn from each other and from gaining experience for future races – or just getting from place to place faster.

We have also held presentations and promoted short courses on topics such as Starting Procedures and Race Management.

We work with other clubs in the Chichester Harbour Federation to organise events with them or take part in their events including Chichester Yacht Club, Emsworth Slipper Sailing Club, Hayling Island Sailing Club and Itchenor Sailing Club.

Many CCRC members take part for no better reason than the fun of it, while others also compete at the highest levels with notable successes in RORC races, Cowes Week, Cork Week, the IRC Nationals and ISC Round-the-Island.

“I have an ordinary cruising boat but I can still take part in quality racing.”

Guest Participation

Potential members can take advantage of racing as a guest yacht for a trial race or just race with someone else for the experience.
