“Welcome to the Dell Quay Sailing Club homepage. The club house and dinghy park are situated in the upper reaches of Chichester Harbour next to the small village of Apuldram – about five minutes away from Chichester in a car. The tidal harbour covers an area that stretches from Havant to West Wittering and Chichester to Hayling Island (Click to see an area map). It offers the sailor a variety of conditions from the calmer waters found at the tops of the channels to the rougher more bracing conditions near the heads – all subject to tide and wind conditions.
The club is now in it’s 75th year and, as ever, we will be offering a comprehensive season of sailing events for Enterprise and Laser Class dinghies, as well as catering for all other classes in handicap races. In addition, we also play host to a number of national open events. There are regular training and advice sessions, to help members to improve their skills. Everyone is encouraged to take part in the racing programme, but we also recognise the value of non-competitive recreational sailing and fully support this activity too. There are berthing spaces for a large number of dinghies and a small number of moorings for yachts. Our cruising members have a very active section, with rallys and events through out the year.
Dell Quay is predominantly a family oriented, non-profit making club – but this doesn’t stop us from offering tempting land-based facilities for our sailors. Our club house is fully equipped with bar, lounge area, galley, changing rooms, showers, toilets and sun deck. We host regular and popular social events that all members are very welcome to attend. To help maintain these facilities and events, everyone is assigned a token voluntary duty at the start of each season e.g. galley, bar duty or rescue boat.
We hope that you will enjoy finding out more about our club on the other pages at this site and that we can offer all you are looking for in a sailing club.”
