Our taster sails in Chichester Harbour are a great day out, ideal as a birthday treat or family day out. Each taster sail runs from 1000-1600 and are a good way to find out if you like sailing before booking on a course or longer sailing trip.
We can show you round the basics of sailing in one of our taster sessions, or you can just enjoy the sail and the sights.
You will have the opportunity to practice steering the boat and trimming the sails, and we will share lunch together.
Chichester Harbour is of national and international importance for landscape and nature conservation and is a special place for wildlife.
A wide variety of animals and creatures live in and around the Harbour – some are very easy to spot, whereas others may be hidden in the intertidal mud or in the water, making them less obvious. As you walk or sail here, you are bound to see something special.
Some of the habitats and wildlife are internationally important, so they are protected by international legislation. Wetlands are one of the most threatened and diminishing habitats throughout Europe. Therefore, places such as Chichester Harbour and parts of the southeast of England are special because these wetland areas, and the intertidal mud, provide food for many important bird species.
