Media coverage

We were in the news again last week, this time in the Chichester Observer. The article covered the club’s weekend event in Chichester Harbour, May 4-7 (as per the posting below – May 7).

Media Coverage – Cody’s PTBO

The Chichester Post have printed a nice article about our upcoming Push The Boat Out event – and although they say that we’re new and based in Chichester (we’re 70 years old this year and while we keep our boats at Frensham Pond we operate across the South) everything else is accurate.

The RYA have very pleasingly promoted our event on the RYA South Region News page.

If you’re thinking of coming to the event on Sunday, please let us know – email

Cody Sailing Club Push the Boat Out

Cody Sailing Club will be participating in the RYA’s Push The Boat Out event on May 20th. See the RYA’s News & Events pages for further details (link below), look out for us in local press around the south coast and on social media. Be sure to come and see us on the beach at Stokes Bay on the 20th.

Solar Powered Sailing – using the Sea Breeze

We just enjoyed a very special long weekend of camping and sailing in Chichester Harbour. The weather was record-breaking and with clear blue sky from horizon to horizon there was sure to be a sea breeze. The forecasted wind was only an Easterly F1-2. Each day we waited for the sea breeze to start, which gave a cooling and refreshing F3 Southerly breeze across the harbour. Given the tide, the best place to go was to East Head, HISC and then home, on one day via Bosham for ice creams. We teamed up with First Sunday Sailing Group and enjoyed fleet cruising with them on both Saturday and Sunday. On Monday the sea breeze took longer to arrive than on the other days, and by noon we had solid wind. We had time to visit East Head for lunch, a chat and a snooze in the sun.
A very enjoyable and relaxing time, with great company.

Furthermore, we were joined in Chichester Harbour by the Cody Sailing Club yachts who sailed from Portsmouth and spent the night in Itchenor. This is a picture of the passing dinghies from one of our yachts.
