Club camping and sailing week at Cobnor, Chichester.
TTSC have held an annual family camping & sailing week at Cobnor for over 30 years. The campsite is booked for 2 weeks  in July/August & is shared with members from Bough Beech Sailing Club.  Most TTSC members go for the first week & BBSC the second, although there is a mixture at all times.

The camp is open to any TTSC club members, their families & friends.  Camp fees are charged per night so you can stay as many nights as you wish from 1 night to 2 weeks. . There is also a small charge for a harbour sticker for each boat. Own tents or caravans are required, as well as a boat if you wish to sail.  For non-sailors there is plenty to do locally with lovely walks around the harbour, a pub within walking distance, & Emsworth, Chichester and Portsmouth are a short drive away. There’s also a lovely beach at West Wittering.

The sailing in Chichester harbour is brilliant with a choice of places to head for, depending on the tides & the wind.  It can be a little daunting at first for novice sailors with the tides, the moored boats and the general harbour traffic to avoid, but there will be many club members around who can give advice. Further information including map and directions are shown in the Members' area of the website and in the clubhouse.
