Bosham Junior Week is a week long racing and social event that is a MUST if you are 8 to 18 years old. Great, competitive racing coupled with a hectic social programme make this the teenage (and younger!) sailing and social event of the year!

- Up to 12 races for all fleets over six days in Chichester Harbour
- 'Fun' races in the afternoons
- Action-packed social life for cadets and parents
- Memories that will last a life time

Our sailing base is at Cobnor
