Saturday saw varied conditions as 35 keen sailors underwent an intense but rewarding training session with some of ITCA’s best coaches. The training covered key racing skills as youngsters aged 12 to 16 were put through their paces off Cobnor Point. All came off the water having improved their racing skills and looking forward to putting them into practice. Sunday brought champagne conditions with a bright blue sky and a 14-knot northerly breeze.

More than 50 sailors from Bosham, Itchenor, Dell Quay and Emsworth and further afield gathered for the annual Bosham Topper Open in the second event of the Rooster Southern Traveller Series. For a full report and pictures see the Chichester Observer - out on Thursday - but you can see Chris Hatton's pictures from the event on this page and the one linked.
