Sailing Weekend: - Cobnor Point
David Pickett is planning a social sailing weekend at Cobnor Point (Chichester Harbour) on 12th to 14th August 2016.
Cobnor point is a private peninsular in the heart of Chichester Harbour. The launch site has constant access to the water in a sheltered spot and we have set the date to provide good tide times for a trip down towards the harbour entrance and back. The campsite is in a very quiet location backing onto the sailing club, but if you’re not inspired to camp there are plenty of other options in the area.
Further information is provided on the notice-board at the club house where you can put your name down on the list, or contact David directly.
