Experience a 2 hour sail on this classic, beautiful, competitive, racing yacht in stunning Chichester Harbour.

You will need to join in and pull ropes etc so suitable clothes are required eg trainers, a waterproof jacket and possibly trousers too. Gloves – riggers or gardening ones are fine! You will need to come in suitably grippy soft-soled trainers or boots (no heels on board, its all varnished wood!).
